National Day for Truth and Reconciliation + Orange Shirt Day

To properly move forward, it is imperative that we look back.
As we commemorate the second year of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, as well as Orange Shirt Day, we do not only remember the stolen lives of the children from residential schools but also acknowledge the stolen land we currently occupy.
While it might be a tough topic and impossible to completely wrap our heads around, we try our best to educate ourselves.
Here are some of the resources we've gathered to help us learn and resonate with the experiences of our Indigenous community.
