Orange Shirt Day

by Braden Murray

Today is Orange Shirt Day.

On September 30th each year we remember the Canadian residential school system and its students on Orange Shirt Day. If you’re not familiar with Orange Shirt Day then take a few minutes to watch this clip of founder Phyllis Webstad tell her story.

Today is a day to honour residential school survivors and their families, and to remember that every child matters.

Did you know?

The name “Kenora” is a portmanteau of the names of local towns Keewatin, Norman, and Rat Portage— KE from Keewatin,  NO from Norman, and RA from Rat Portage.
