Orange Shirt Day

Date: September 30, 2022

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in May 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. September 30 was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools.

If you’d like to learn more about Orange Shirt Day, there is no better resource than Phyllis Webstad herself. In the videos linked below, Phyllis speaks about the origin of Orange Shirt Day and her experiences attending a residential school.
