“Tim O’Loan comes from two wounded communities: one military, one Indigenous. Tim is a proud Indigenous (Sahtu Dene) Veteran, having served 10 years (1983-1993) in the military. Throughout Tim’s life he experienced massive amounts of racism and trauma. The racism and his search for his identity was something Tim struggled with until his mid 40’s when he started working at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).” Given his unique history, Tim O’Loan now identifies as a knowledge keeper and continues to share this unique perspective across Canada and beyond, particularly through the Indigenous Veterans lens, mental health and Reconciliation.
