Meet Phyllis Webstad at the Calgary event


Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of a 2013 Joseph Mission Residential School Commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC. It grew out of former student, Phyllis Webstad's account of having her new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission. Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
