Some of you have inquired about where to obtain orange shirts to honour the legacy of Residential schools. Cost is approximately $26 each, which includes tax and shipping, and the cost is paid directly to The Orange Shirt Society.
The KUC Reconciliation Exploration Circle is going to put in an order for the congregation. Please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in ordering a shirt. Or, the shirts can be ordered directly from the Orange Shirt Society website https://www.orangeshirtday.org/.
The official Orange Shirt for 2021 is the one in the image with this post. (Shirts are available in English or in French)
ABOUT THE ARTIST
.Shayne Hommy, a Grade 11 First Nation Cree student at South Peace Secondary School, in Dawson Creek.
She said, “Orange Shirt Day means justice and awareness for indigenous people.”
My design is three little indigenous girls from different tribes, holding hands to represent the unity of our people, (indigenous peoples) resilience and strength throughout the many years of suffering indigenous peoples had to face.”
