PowWow to Honor ICWA & Orange Shirt Day

Honoring indigenous people who’ve attended residential schools
Busse Woods Groves #20, #23 & #24 • E. Higgins Rd/Rte 72, east of I-290/Hwy 53
Cook County, IL 60007

Join us on Saturday, September 24th, 2022 at Busse Woods (Groves #20, #23 & #24 near the Lake Boating Center) as we honor and remember the victims of residential boarding schools with the Every Child Matters PowWow. Orange Shirt Day is Friday, September 30th in Canada where residential schools housed and educated indigenous children dating back more than a century. However, recent discoveries of mass unmarked graves of indigenous children near these boarding schools have only begun to be investigated. Too many unanswered questions remain. Tribes in the U.S. join with our Canadian family in seeking answers to this injustice as we recognize Canada’s statutory holiday of Orange Shirt Day. We are raising awareness for the Indian Child Welfare Act which goes before the Supreme Court next session in the fall. ICWA is a policy establishing federal standards for the placement of Native American children in supportive homes that foster native culture, promoting stability and security for Native American Tribes throughout the United States. Defend ICWA!
