Members of the Tobacco Plains Indian Band will join officials from the City of Fernie for a flag raising ceremony and discussions about reconciliation.

Each year, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconcilation. The day honours the children who never returned home and the Residential School Survivors, their families and their respected communities.

Elders and members of the Yaq?it ?a·knuq?i ‘it will gather at City Hall with City officials at 10:00 am, with presentations about reconcilation from:

  • Nasukin (Chief) Heidi Gravelle, Yaq?it ?a·knuq?i ‘it
  • Mayor Nic Milligan

Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, and to promote the concept of 'Every Child Matters' incorporating Reconciliation and forging a pathway forward.
