30 September 2022

Today, September 30, the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS), along with other Native American individuals, groups, and marks a National Day of Remembrance for U.S. Indian Boarding Schools. This aligns with the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation that is observed in Canada for residential school survivors. It is also called Orange Shirt Day to honor the story of one girl whose treasured orange shirt given to her by her grandmother was taken away from her at residential school in 1973/74!. The orange shirt has come to symbolize awareness for the children who died or went missing at these institutions. NABS has orange t-shirts available to purchase. Time for education and action.

A prayer for this day, a prayer for every day

Creator God,

thank you for this day.

Help us trust that

you will give us

the grace and strength

and whatever we need

to face what this day brings

We pray in the name of

Creator Sets Free [Jesus].

Amen.

inspired by “Gift from Creator Tells the Good Story 6:33-34” in the First Nations Version: An Indigenous Translation of the New Testament
