Following, are some helpful resources:
- Seven Fallen Feathers.Racism, Death and Hard Truths in a Northern City, by Tanya Talaga. Although this book is not about Jordan, it does touch on his story and the development of Jordan’s Principle.
- Truth and Reconciliation.Calls to Action.Call to Action # 3 states: We call upon all levels of government to fully implement Jordan’s Principle.
- Jordan River Anderson. The Messenger. This is a one-hour TVO documentary, produced by Alanis Obomsawin.
- In addition, more information can be found online by searching “Jordan’s Principle” or “Jordan Miller Anderson”.
A key figure in advocating for Jordan and for all Indigenous children is Cindy Blackstock. Read about her in “Extraordinary Canadians” by Peter Mansbridge, this year’s choice for “One Book, One Community”. Cindy, along with Eddy Robinson, has written Spirit Bear and Children Make History. This book, geared for a younger audience, is currently out of print, but is available as a PDF file and at the public library.

Knox is open for in-person worship! You will need to reserve your seat online and follow health and safety protocols. Once again, if you have difficulties with the online registration system, give the office a call.
“The work of reconciliation never ends — it is what we were created in Christ to do.”
