President Barnard’s message on Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day (Sept. 30) is a national day of remembrance, honouring Residential School Survivors and their resilience, and remembering the history and legacy of Residential Schools. On Friday, Sept. 27, the University of Manitoba community will wear orange shirts and walk across the Fort Garry campus to recognize this important day.

Elder Phyllis Webstad recently shared her story with the UM community at a Fireside Chat at Migizii Agamik – Bald Eagle Lodge. She is the Survivor whose new orange shirt was taken away on her first day attending Residential School, an event that would eventually lead to the creation of Orange Shirt Day. Her strength and courage are an inspiration to all.
