Reconciliation happens when we all participate.
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, also known as Orange Shirt Day, is a day of reflection, commemoration, and sharing. We, at KMAI, listen with open ears to the stories of survivors and their families, and to remember those that did not make it home. We stay committed to this journey of learning, unlearning, and relearning all year-round. Support Indigenous-led spaces and organizations that are helping improve the futures of Indigenous Peoples.
