4 Ways to Honour National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

  1. Wear orange. Continue to bring awareness to the victims and survivors of residential schools. Every Child Matters.  https://www.orangeshirtday.org/
  2. Attend an event. While many events in the Edmonton region are no longer accepting registrations, consider watching events on YouTube channels such as APTN. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxbHtAB7sDyQYJibIMkY1w or visit AUMA's website https://www.auma.ca/news/ideas-commemorating-national-day-truth-and-reconciliation
  3. Learn about indigenous culture and history. Steer our future in the right direction with knowledge of the past and learn indigenous traditions.

We see you, we hear you, we believe you.

We wish to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is Treaty Six territory and a traditional meeting ground and home for many Indigenous Peoples, including Cree, Saulteaux, Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Métis, and Nakota Sioux Peoples.
