Comedian Dallas Goldtooth says reconciliation needs humour

Comedian and environmentalist Dallas Goldtooth sees reconciliation and healing through laughter and humour, and that will be his keynote message at the REDx, an indigenous speaking event similar to the TEDx talks.

This year’s event will focus on reconciliation and falls on the one year anniversary of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s report. It’s set to take place June 2 at the University of Calgary.
