TRC Day a holiday for SNGR

OHSWEKEN — Six Nations of the Grand River says it will be recognizing September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

“All Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council (SNGREC) employees will be given the day off and are encouraged to wear orange the week of September 27 leading up to Orange Shirt Day,” said the council.

“Despite the Ontario government’s decision not to recognize National Day for Truth and Reconciliation as a provincial holiday, Six Nations will be treating September 30 as a day to honour Residential School Survivors and the children who never made it home.”

Community members are also encouraged to engage in an “Act of Awareness” on September 30 and use the hashtag #SNOrangeShirtDay in online posts, photos or artwork to join in recognizing the inaugural TRC Day.
