Posted by Niels Madsen on
On September 30th we will recognize National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This is a day where we must support Indigenous communities and come together in honouring, acknowledging, and recognizing those affected by the residential school system that harmed countless people across generations and the entirety of Canada.
This day came out a movement dubbed ‘Orange Shirt Day’ because of the orange shirts people would wear as a symbol of the culture and the children that were lost to the residential school system. Across Victoria there are a few events commemorating and recognizing this day.
