Ey Swayel All,
Truth and Reconciliation Week runs from Sept. 27 to Oct. 1, 2021. The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation is planning week-long learning opportunities for educators and students.
Over the course of five days, teachers will share videos created by Indigenous storytellers, which show traditional ceremonies and artistic performances, alongside conversations with Elders and knowledge keepers, survivors, and children of survivors of residential schools. There will also be a moving tribute to the missing children that never returned home from the residential schools. On September 30, Orange Shirt Day, a special program will be held to commemorate the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Registration is accessible on the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation website.
Please see the attached event summary.
The Siwal Si’wes Advisory Indigenous Council invites you to observe Orange Shirt Day 2021 - National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. SD75 partnered with the City of Mission and the Mission Friendship Centre. September 30, 2021 at 11am - 2pm.
