A week ago, Pope Francis apologized to Indigenous Canadians for mistreatment by members of the Catholic Church.
Apologies made during a meeting with the delegation representing the three major indigenous groups who came to the Vatican.
Rose Nantel discusses it with the Archbishop of Regina, Donald Bolen, who traveled to the Vatican last week to attend this historic meeting.
Donald Bolen explains that it was a great privilege to be present with the delegation of the three major indigenous groups in Rome.
But for him, the apology presented by the pope represents only a first step in the path of reconciliation.
Since his return, he explains that the Archdiocese has been seeking to engage more with survivors from the 25 Indigenous and First Nations communities by building relationships with members from these communities.
