On this special three part series of the Radio ECMA Podcast we discuss the importance of Orange Shirt Day, indigenous culture and music within Atlantic Canada.

September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.

Host Chris Batstone is joined by Trevor Sanipass, Indigenous Liaison as they interview artists. Also in this special series Cheryl Copage-Gehue, Indigenous Community Engagement Advisor for HRM and Manager of Protocol & Culture for the North American Indigenous Games talks with Trevor and Chris about her knowledge of this important day and Indigenous culture.
