Show your resilience in every step with our joggers! Made from a soft cotton blend, these joggers feature a vibrant print that won't fade, so they can stay in your wardrobe for a long time. This design acknowledges that residential schools are a part of our history. Wearing orange is a national movement to recognize the experience of those who went to Indian residential schools, to honor them, and show a collective commitment to ensure that Every Child Matters. Learn More about this important movement below with the help of ACT (Alaska Children's Trust).
"National Day of Remembrance for US Indian Boarding Schools, or Orange Shirt Day, began as a day to bring attention to the damage the residential school system did to Indigenous children, lifeways, and cultures.
Beginning in the late 1800s, the US government and various church groups began establishing boarding (or residential) schools for American Indian and Alaska Native children. The children were forcibly removed from their families and cultures. These schools were intended to "civilize" Native children and assimilate them into white culture. This amounted to cultural genocide. The first boarding school in Alaska was established in 1878 by Presbyterian missionaries, and in the decades that followed boarding schools opened across Alaska. 33 residential schools operated in Alaska. Alaska Native children were also taken from their homeland to schools across the US.
The first step to healing and reconciliation is truth. Each year, this day continues to draw in more publicity and recognition. Let’s keep that momentum going. Led the efforts for recognizing this important day - email kidsfirst [!at] alaskachildrenstrust.org to get involved in planning"
