The Presbytery

Healing and Reconciliation


St. Paul’s recognizes that we are currently on the traditional territory shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and the Anishinabe nations, which was acknowledged in the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt. That wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need.

The Presbyterian Church in
Canada has embarked on a number of
initiatives with the goal of greater healing and
reconciliation with Aboriginal peoples. There is still a long way to go, but knowing our history and learning through listening can empower us to move forward
