We call upon all Canadians to listen to the stories of residential school survivors and their families, and remember the children who did not survive. This year, Nelson is creating another special edition Orange T-Shirt to bring awareness of the inter-generational impact of residential schools. Get your orange shirt today and join the journey of reconciliation.
Our 2019 Design: "Reconciliation should be ReconciliACTION. We need to see more hands-on reconciliation. This image portrays the strength of our people, holding on to sacred drum songs for the future generations. A pride was lost in the residential school system. CHILDREN taken from their families, hair cut off, are the connection to our past. Stripped of their identity… told to believe a new world. This image shows a young woman drumming and singing healing songs that were passed on from grandparents who suffered residential school terrors, but never lost their PRIDE, hiding their tears so the next generation could be proud of who they are and where they came from, protected by the eagle.” - Kalum Teke Dan
