''The Longest Way Home'' is a story of deep survival. And of a difficult but possible reconciliation. In April 2022, t was quite something to see Indigenous Canadians proudly dressed in traditional costumes, waiting quietly under St.Peter’s colonnade. They met the Pope, and Francis apologized for the role of the Church in the colonial tragedy of the residential schools. Only few months later, the Pope flew to the Indigenous ancestral lands of Canada to say ''I am sorry'' again. It will not be easy, but a fresh path of reconciliation started in the lands scarred by history.
