Orange Shirt Day – September 30, 2020

On September 30, 2020 the ACHH team along with IWK Health and Dalhousie staff and students took part in Orange Shirt Day events. The day included an outdoor event at IWK Health with Indigenous Elders leading us in prayer, followed by the singing of the Honour Song by Courtney and Brittany Pennell as well as a Jingle Dance by Courtney Pennell. A virtual panel was also held in the afternoon with a powerful panel of Indigenous leaders and health providers – click here to listen. We were humbled by the events of the day and felt empowered to do and say more in an effort to squash systemic racism and improve the lives of Indigenous people. Thank You to all who shared their stories and experiences ♥
