Saturday, September 30 marks National Day of Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. To honour this day, the Paperny Family JCC's Arts and Culture Department, powered by Calgary Jewish Federation, hosted Susan Bare Shin Bone, Cultural Facilitator and Indigenous Engagement at Hull Services, for a morning of interactive learning on September 29. Children and adults alike gathered to hear traditional Indigenous stories, songs, and create symbolic artwork that is currently on display at the JCC. For more information on cultural celebrations and commemorations, contact Yanina Rabinovich.
