Month-long campaign launches to ‘honour those who were subjected to the Indian Residential School system’ – CHVN

Sep 02 2021

An organization representing First Nations in southern Manitoba is starting a month-long campaign to commemorate and offer solidarity to those who were affected by residential schools.

“September has been a traumatic month for First Nation people because it was the month the children were stolen from our communities,” says SCO Grand Chief Jerry Daniels in a media release. “This September, and for the next 30 days and every day after, I call on all those who now share this land to learn everything you can about this dark period in Canada’s history, so that we can properly honour Survivors and remember the innocent lives lost because of it.”

The Southern Chiefs’ Organization is spearheading the Orange Heart Awareness campaign, which will include information about residential schools and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30 on billboards, bus boards and transit shelters.
