Things We are Into This Week: Sept 29th – Oct 05
WHAT WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT
On Sept. 30, we are excited to once again celebrate Orange Shirt Day in recognition of reconciliation and hope. This day was created to commemorate Phyllis Webstad’s story of her first day at residential school when her new orange shirt was taken from her. Take a moment to watch Phyllis’ story.
The Castlemain team rounds up the new, Indigenous, cultural things they’re into this week — from new books to movies, to speaker series, to music and podcasts!
