National Day for Truth & Reconciliation at the Children’s Museum
September 30 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
National Day For Truth & Reconciliation is an opportunity to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools – the impacts of which are still being felt in communities across Canada. As a member of the City of Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord, the Children’s Museum stands with Indigenous communities and wishes to honour Survivors and the children who never made it home.
Join us with FREE(*) general admission on a journey of education and reflection with a Métis Paper Vest workshop facilitated by the Louis Riel Institute and programming provided by Elder Barb Nepinak. Create a take-home decorative heart for a Heart Garden, with each heart representing the memory of a child lost to the residential school system. Our teepee will be on display for special story times at 12:00PM and 2:00PM and bannock will be served while supplies last.
The museum will be open regular hours (9:30AM – 4:30PM) with special programming between 11:00AM – 3:00PM.
Guests of all ages are encouraged to wear an orange shirt to help raise awareness of the impacts of residential schools and in remembrance – every child matters.
