"The three Anglicans who represented the church at a ceremony last fall honouring children who died in Canada's Indian residential schools say they hope it will begin a process whereby the suffering of Indigenous children will be fully recognized by Canadians. The ceremony, organized by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR), was held Sept. 30  -- Orange Shirt Day -- at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Que., across the Ottawa River from the nation's capital. Former residential school students, family, friends and dignitaries gathered for the presentation of a 50-metre-long piece of red cloth bearing the names of 2,800 children who did not return from the residential schools. The event also featured speeches, musical and dance performances and prayers. Attending the event for the Anglican Church of Canada were Mark MacDonald, national Indigenous Anglican archbishop; Lydia Mamakwa, bishop of the Indigenous Spiritual Ministry of Mishamikoweesh; and Melanie Delva, the church's reconciliation animator" (p. 7). "In recent years, students and staff in many Canadian schools have been wearing orange shirts every Sept. 30 to mark the legacy of the Indian residential school system. The orange shirts are in memory of Phyllis Webstad, a former residential school student. Webstad's orange shirt -- a gift from her grandmother -- was taken off her on her first day at a B.C. residential school in 1976, and never returned" (p. 7). "Speaking at the event, Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde also addressed the future as well as the past" (p. 10). "'On Sept. 30, every child matters', said Bellegarde. 'We can't change the past, but we all can be part of changing the future and building a better country. That's what today is all about" (p. 10).
