United Church of Canada Indigenous Ministries and Justice is hosting an Orange Shirt Day panel on September 29 from 2:30-4:00 pm PT.
Panelists Allison Forsberg, Jocelyn Formsma, Leeann Shimoda and the Rev. Murray Pruden will explore how Indigenous children and families were, and continue to be, impacted by colonialism. They will answer a series of questions posed by our moderator Springwater Hester-Meawassige, which will touch on a range of topics including Indigenous Children in Residential Schools, Sixties Scoop, Millennial Scoop, and bringing our children home.
