    The Orange Shirt Story featuring Phyllis Webstad

    The Orange Shirt Story featuring Phyllis Webstad

    “The Orange Shirt Story” read by author Phyllis Webstad with permission from Medicine Wheel Educationwww.medicinewheel.education
    This is the true story of a little girl and her very important orange shirt. Six-year-old Phyllis Webstad was as excited to wear her shiny new orange shirt as she was to attend school for the first time. But her first day at the St. Joseph Mission near Williams Lake, BC was nothing like she expected. Her orange shirt was taken away from her, never to be returned.
    Since 2013, each year on September 30th, we wear orange to honour the Residential School survivors like Phyllis. We honour their experiences and the experiences of their families. Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for Indigenous Peoples, local governments, schools and communities to all come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for future generations of children.
    It is a day to reaffirm that EVERY CHILD MATTERS.
    Music by Alexander Reid Whelton
