An unprecedented online event open to all Canadian schools

Over 10,000 teachers and over 500,000 of Canadian youth joined on September 30 to honour Residential School Survivors, their families and communities at an extraordinary virtual event to support and encourage meaningful Reconciliation across Canada.

For Grades 5 through 12.

Teachers registered on behalf of their classroom. 1 order per classroom.

Designed for students in Grades 5 through 12, this virtual event provides an opportunity to learn first-hand from Residential School Survivors, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, artists and leaders from nations and cultures across the country. Educators could select the events they wish to livestream for their students and download free educational resources.

This national gathering is hosted by the National Center for Truth and Reconciliation and will bring together a diverse and inspiring program of Truth and Reconciliation activities to coincide with Orange Shirt Day. As Canadians, we are called upon to take action to learn, share and celebrate, and to build a better country together!

An extraordinary online event Sept. 30, 2020.

NCTR’s spirit name – bezhig miigwan, meaning “one feather”.

Bezhig miigwan calls upon us to see each Survivor coming to the NCTR as a single eagle feather and to show those Survivors the same respect and attention an eagle feather deserves. It also teaches we are all in this together — we are all one, connected, and it is vital to work together to achieve reconciliation.
