Important Dates

National Orange Shirt Day: http://www.orangeshirtday.org/

Although the ‘official’ annual date is September 30, we will be recognizing it in districts around the province on Friday, September 28 and we ask that staff and students, as a visual act of reconciliation,  show their awareness by wearing something orange. Schools and/or individual classrooms will be honoring this day with various activities before, during and after the date.

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013.  It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year.  It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations. Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

 

Sisters in Spirit: https://www.nwac.ca/home/policy-areas/violence-prevention-and-safety/sisters-in-spirit/

October 4th is a day where we honour the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). The October 4th Sisters In Spirit (SIS) Vigils are powerful movements of social change. The number of SIS Vigils has grown from 11 in 2006 to an impressive 212 vigils in 2017. Check out possible activities in your area. The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) produced a resource guide in 2015 to help friends and supporters safely and responsibly raise awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). The NWAC Community Resource Guide has factsheets on MMIWG and the causes of violence against Indigenous women and girls.
