Resilience, Courage celebrated on Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day

Students, teachers, administrators, and support staff in schools and offices around Eeyou Istchee marked Orange Shirt Day September 30, 2019 with activities to involve all ages.

From barbecues and parades to fiddle-dancers, Monday was a day to capture the essence of what it means to reclaim one's Indigenous birthright.

Orange Shirt Day began in 2013 as an event designed to promote awareness around the residential school system. It is held annually on September 30.
