Not Just Another Day Off: Orange Shirt Day and the Legacy of Indian Residential Schools: To Listen
The University of Saskatchewan Libraries' exhibit titled Not Just Another Day Off: Orange Shirt Day and the Legacy of Indian Residential Schools will be on display from September 2021 until June 27, 2022.
In November of 2013, some of our CJSW news volunteers attended a public hearing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada that was held in Calgary. We were able to record hours of testimony from the public. This includes: Indian Residential School Survivors, their children, staff from the schools, and people otherwise affected by Canada’s residential school system. This series presents some of the recordings from the hearings.
On each episode hosts Matika Wilbur (Tulalip and Swinomish) and Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation), delve into a different topic facing Native peoples today, bringing in guests from all over Indian Country to offer perspectives and stories. We dive deep, play some games, laugh a lot, cry sometimes, and hope that you’ll join us on this journey together.
