The 2014-2015 J.R. Mallory Lecture: "Reconciliation: The Children's Version"

by Cindy Blackstock, M.M., PhD, Executive Director, First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada

With each generation comes a chance to create a Canada worthy of all of our children’s dreams. This presentation shows how children and young people are leading the movement for culturally based equity for First Nations children and their families and uplifting the country in the process.


A member of the Gitksan Nation, Dr. Blackstock has worked in the field of child and family services for over 20 years. Key interests include exploring the over representation of Aboriginal children in child welfare care, structural drivers of child maltreatment in First Nations communities, human rights and the role of the voluntary sector in expanding the range of culturally and community-based responses to child maltreatment.

Current professional interests include serving as an Atkinson Economic Justice Fellow, J.W. McConnell Family Foundation Social Innovation Generation Fellow, an Ashoka Fellow and a board member of the National Aboriginal Youth Organization.
