Today marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. We honour the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Both the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day take place on September 30. Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day that honours the Survivors of Indian Residential Schools and those who did not. We acknowledge the traditional lands on which we gather are that of the people of the Treaty 4 region in Southwestern Alberta, Treaty 6 region in Central Alberta, Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, Treaty 8 in Northern Alberta, Treaty 10 region in Northcentral Alberta, and the Métis Nation of Alberta. We encourage you to listen and learn.
