September 30th marks the 3rd annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada and the 11th annual Orange Shirt Day. A time to honour and remember the children and survivors of Residential Schools in Canada.

You are invited to come to Concrete Beach at Western University on SEPTEMBER 25TH, 2023 to observe our NDTR flag raising. We have invited the Oneida Women’s singers to sing while we raise the flag to honour all the children that didn't come home, those that are still missing and those who survived.
