The Commemoration Canoe, created by First Nations carvers and adorned with tiles made by students to reflect what they have learned about residential schools, was on display at the Langley Centennial Museum this past summer.

Speaking to Memory exhibit on display at D.W. Poppy Sept. 28

Participants invited to design a tile for the Project of the Heart canoe

D.W. Poppy Secondary is inviting the public to visit the Speaking to Memory exhibit put on by Langley’s Journey to Reconciliation Committee on Sept. 28 between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

The exhibit includes photos, statements, apologies and the Project of Heart canoe. Participants can design a tile in honour of survivors and the children who never returned home from B.C.’s residential schools. The tiles will become witness pieces that will raise fund for Justice 4 Indigenous Women and First Nations Caring Society.

It is Orange Shirt Day and “Every Child Matters” across the Langley school district on Thursday, Sept. 29, with assemblies and efforts to honour and remember those indigenous children who were taken from their families to government and church-run residential schools.

The orange shirt represents one girl who wore the shirt to her first day at residential school. The shirt was taken off her immediately and never to be seen again.
