Orange Shirt Day (September 30th) is a day when we honor the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and learn more about the history of those schools.Residential schools were church-run schools where approximately 150,000 Métis, Inuit and First Nations children were sent between the 1860s and the 1990s. The schools harmed Indigenous children by removing them from their families, forcing them to speak English or French instead of their ancestral languages, disconnecting them from their culture and traditions and forcing them to adopt Christianity in order to assimilate into Canadian society. The government has since acknowledged that this approach was wrong, cruel and ineffective, and offered an official apology to the Indigenous people of Canada in 2008.www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gs0iwY6YjSk...
