As the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation approaches on Sept. 30, people and businesses are preparing for a day of education, celebration and reconciliation.
The orange shirt has become a symbol of reconciliation in Canada and as a result, people are looking to pick one up.
One place known for their orange shirts is the Indigenous-owned Pebl Goods in Saskatoon.
“(We are) looking at trying to change, promote and work towards increasing and improving the lives of people,” said owner Derek Rope. “For Indigenous people living in Saskatoon and the surrounding area and ultimately across the province.”
The store sells “Every Child Matters” orange shirts for $24.00, with a portion of the proceeds going directly back into the community with the hope of educating youth on reconciliation and the struggles Indigenous people face, but also for groups to come together and have fun.
