Orange T-Shirt Day
Artist: Kwiaahwah Jones
Orange Shirt Day is on September 30 and any other day, to honour the children who survived the Indian Residential Schools (IRS) as well as remember those who didn't. We must remember and acknowledge our shared past in order to walk forward and not repeat it.
Partial proceeds from the sale of every t-shirt will be donated, supporting various residential school survivors groups and societies.
