“September 30 is an annual day to recognize and raise awareness about the residential school system in Canada, join together in the spirit of reconciliation, and honour the experiences of Indigenous Peoples. Between the late 1800s and 1996, more than 150,000 First Nations, Métis and Inuit children attended Indian residential schools – Orange Shirt Day commemorates this legacy.”
The Residential School History and Dialogue Centre at UBC is open from 10-4 today and welcomes anyone looking to rest. Cultural support from Indian Residential School Survivors Society will also be available all day for anyone in need. Learn more here.
