THERE’S STILL TIME to order or make an orange shirt, button, or pin to honour residential school survivors on Orange Shirt Day (Wednesday, September 30, 2020) along with schoolchildren all over Canada, and especially BC where the event started.
UVic will host a free online Orange Shirt Day event at noon on September 30.
UVic has its own Orange Shirt design created by Carey Newman Hayalthkin’geme (Kwakwaka’wakw/Coast Salish), Audain Professor of Contemporary Art Practice of the Pacific Northwest.
