Orange Shirt Day 2019

Orange Shirt Day 2019

On September 30, we encourage everyone to wear an orange shirt to honour and remember the experiences and loss of the thousands of children who were stolen from their families and placed in Indian Residential Schools (IRS). 


One of the greatest impacts of IRS was cultural genocide; this is why we decided to turn this painful history into a positive one. 

First Peoples' House encourages your support in purchasing an U of A Orange Shirt from the U of A Bookstore for you, your family and/or for your whole department.  All proceeds from the sales goes directly back to First Peoples' House to fund Cultural Programming. We have turned this into a way to reclaim and honour our cultural roots.
