WHAT IS ORANGE SHIRT DAY?
On her first day at residential school, Phyllis Webstad had her new orange shirt taken away from her. On Orange Shirt Day, we wear orange to honour Phyllis and the many other children of residential schools and to signify the loss they experienced through being taken from their families.
