Orange Shirt Day

The Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council’s Quu’asa (Mental Health) department commemorated Orange Shirt Day Sept 30, 2016 and remembered the legacy of the residential school system.

About 100 people took part in a brief walk from the Tseshaht longhouse, down along the River Road portion of highway 4 and then back again. Passersby along the highway honked their horns in support of all the people wearing bright orange shirts.
