Orange Snoods (retail price point $15.00 plus delivery and HST)
September 30 has recently been proclaimed as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Since 2014, people from across Canada have worn orange shirts as a reminder of what happened to more than 150,000 Indigenous children who attended residential schools
NOSM has been observing Orange Shirt Day on September 30 with guest presentations by residential school survivors and encouraging students, faculty and staff to wear orange t-shirts. This year, Isaac Murdoch, an Anishinaabe artist and activist, has once again allowed us to print his design on t-shirts which says: “Bring the Children Home. It’s Time.” This is especially meaningful given the confirmed reports of gravesites at several residential schools, with more discoveries expected. The harsh truth we acknowledge is that thousands of children died while at residential school.
These unique Orange neck snoods are available for purchase. All proceeds generated will be placed into a Truth Award fund for an Indigenous medical student at NOSM.
Please visit nosm.ca/national-day-for-truth-and-reconciliation for more information about how The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation will be recognized at NOSM as a Whole School Event, one day before September 30, and for more ways to support individual learning in a truth-telling era and taking meaningful action towards reconciliation. Donations can be made in support of Truth Award for an Indigenous medical student at NOSM and Indigenous Educational Initiatives. Charitable donation receipts will be issued for all gifts over $25.00.
