Orange Shirt Day

Description

Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity to participate in a collective act of reconciliation. Continue the conversation about the history of Canada’s Residential School legacy.

Additional Information

Orange Shirt Day represents a significant opportunity for each of us to deepen our understanding of the impact of our shared history. We can listen to the stories of those who went through residential schools, those who continue to be impacted as a result, and we can honour the strength and resilience of Indigenous peoples and communities.

Usually, Orange Shirt Day provides a chance for us to come together in person. Due to the pandemic we will be gathering virtually but still in the spirit of truth and reconciliation as we work toward a better future for all.

This year’s event will include:

  • Remarks from Chief Cadmus Delorme who is Cree and Saulteaux, a citizen and currently Chief of the Cowesses First Nation.  Chief Delorme will speak about reconciliation.
  • Jingle Dress Dancers will perform healing dances in a beautiful valley in Treaty 4 Territory to sounds of a talented Drum group.
  • Performance by Eekwol (Lindsay Knight). Lindsey is a Saskatchewan hip hop artist from the Muskoday First Nation. She has won several awards and speaks powerfully about Indigenous culture and female empowerment.

This is a partnered event with Regina and Saskatchewan organizations.
