National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2021

September 30th has been federally recognized as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to recognize and commemorate the legacy of Indian Residential Schools; it is also recognized as Orange Shirt Day.

kihêw waciston would like to hold space and offer support for anyone who wishes to join together in healing as we honor all those who have been affected by Residential Schools, including survivors and the children who never made it home.

Programming for the day will include (weather permitting):

  • Sacred fire tipi all day, located outside kihêw waciston, between Robbins Health Learning Centre and Allard Hall

  • Wellness Circle and all-day support with Elders

  • Live-mural: painting together to create a community piece

  • Artist session: Nataanii Means and Antoine Edwards Jr.

  • Boxed lunches available for students

Wear orange on September 30th to show your support.

Orange hearts will be available for distribution (prior to Sept 30). We encourage you to receive a heart and hang in your area in support of this significant day.
