September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and wellbeing, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) Residential School (1891-1981) Commemoration Project and Reunion events that took place in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in May 2013. This project was the vision of Esketemc (Alkali Lake) Chief Fred Robbins, who is a former student himself. It brought together former students and their families from the Secwepemc, Tsilhqot’in, Southern Dakelh and St’at’imc Nations along with the Cariboo Regional District, the Mayors and municipalities, School Districts and civic organizations in the Cariboo Region.
The events were designed to commemorate the residential school experience, to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation. Chief Justice Murray Sinclair challenged all of the participants to keep the reconciliation process alive.
Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of this project. As spokesperson for the Reunion group leading up to the events, former student Phyllis (Jack) Webstad told her story of her first day at residential school when her shiny new orange shirt, bought by her grandmother, was taken from her as a six-year old girl, and we came to the realization that all survivors had similar stories.
The annual Orange Shirt Day on September 30th opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. It is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind: a discussion all Canadians can tune into and create bridges with each other for reconciliation. Orange Shirt Day is a day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, and so do those that have been affected. Every Child Matters, even if they are an adult, from now on!
The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
It all started right here in the Cariboo, and as a result, Cariboo Chilcotin School District No. 27 has been chosen by the First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) to pilot curriculum changes for all Grade 5 and Grade 10 students reflecting the residential school experience, to be implemented province-wide.
Resolutions have been passed in support of Orange Shirt Day by local governments, school districts, and First Nations in the Cariboo and beyond. Most recently the AFN Chiefs-in-Council passed a resolution declaring Orange Shirt Day “a first step in reconciliation”, and pledging to bring the message home as well as to the government of Canada and the churches responsible.
On this day of September 30th, we call upon humanity to listen with open hearts to the stories of survivors and their families, and to remember those that didn’t make it.
We encourage all to post pictures of your event or activity, share your story, or simply enjoy others sharing theirs.

I accept and I confess before God and you, our failures in the residential schools. We failed you. We failed ourselves. We failed God.I am sorry, more than I can say that we were part of a system which took you and your children from home and family.I am sorry, more than I can say that we tried to remake you in our image, taking from you your language and the signs of your identity. I am sorry, more than I can say, that in our schools so many were abused physically, sexually, culturally and emotionally.On behalf of the Anglican Church of Canada, I present our apology.

The priests and nuns keys jangled as they walked, so we knew
when they were coming. Everyone in the dorm would quiet down, because you never
knew what they’d do. Sometimes they’d bring high school students or more
priests and brothers to hold our arms and press our bodies against a metal pole
in the center of the room. Then they’d beat us with straps and a two by four
with handles, which they called the ‘board of education.“There were also
regular whippings at noon. One day, my older brother,
“As children, we didn’t know their policy was to de Indianize
us. We only knew we enjoyed one another’s company and would play games, such as
migs, or marbles, that involved phrases in our language. Another student would
inevitably run and tell Sister, and I would get a beating. At the time, they
never explained my infraction. Just recently, the reality hit me hard: it was
because I had so frequently spoken my language with my playmates. I suddenly
understood why they snitch, often from more assimilated families, told and why
I was punished so often. Another aspect of assimilation was taking away ribbon
shirts and other culturally related clothes. Every year, I looked forward to
wearing clothing my mother spent most of the summer sewing to make me look
proud and colorful for school. But once I got there, those items were removed,
and instead I wore clothes that were drab and not even mine. The child
molesters would come and go, as the Church rotated them among the Indian
missions. We children stood by each other as best we could, but for a child, it
was a disturbing, sickening place to be. I have often wondered, where did the
nuns and priests learn those things? My class, 1975, was the last to graduate
