This and the second video mark the experiences of First Nations, Metis and Inuit children in residential schools.

“We are here to learn about this dark history, but to show the survival, the resilience, the courage and the love that our communities have for our children,” Elder Claudette Commanda, an Algonquin Anishinabe from Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation, says in the video.

Orange Shirt Day is named in memory of Phyllis Webstad’s favourite shirt, one she wore and had taken away from her on her first day at a residential school in 1973. Webstad has since published two books, the "Orange Shirt Story" and "Phyllis's Orange Shirt,” aimed at educating children about the residential school system and Indigenous history.
