Every Child Matters: Orange Shirt Day
September 30 is Orange Shirt Day – a day to remember the legacy of residential schools in Canada. The Woodland Cultural Centre (site of the former Anglican-run residential school in Brantford).
The WCC is selling orange shirts with proceeds going towards their Save the Evidence campaign – an initiative to restore the residential school so history is preserved for generations to come.
Ordering details are here (click for link) if you’re interested.
Additionally, you can take a virtual tour of the Mohawk Institute Residential School (link here). The virtual tour allows participants to see the entire facility and is interspersed with stories from residential school survivors – really powerful!
