Gord Downie Supports Truth and Reconciliation in Canada

Gord Downie is in the works of releasing a new album titled "Secret Path." This album is dedicated to residential school student, Chanie Wenjack, who died from starvation during his attempt to runaway from a residential school in Kenora, Ontario. Graphic novelist, Jeff Lemire, will also release a graphic novel to accompany Gord Downie's album in October.

All proceeds from both projects will be donated to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation.

Check out the attached CBC web link for more information about Chanie Wenjack and the projects dedicated to his story.

On Septmber 30th join ASD-N as we participate in "Orange Shirt Day" to honour those survivors of Canada's Indian Residential School System and commemorate the many who never made it home. Overall, the importance of this commemoration event is to recognize the harm and trauma inflicted on Aboriginal children for decades, and affirm a commitment to remembering those impacted. 

Fortunately, we have a resource in our district that will serve as a contact and facilitator of the promotion and execution of this initiative. Her name is Lorraine Clair and you can get in contact with her through her nbed account She is prepared to support you in your efforts to make this day a success in your school. She will also be available to help teachers use this day as an opportunity to teach students about residential schools and other related topics in the days leading up to Orange Shirt Day as well as the days that follow.
