Saskatchewan residents will soon have the opportunity to wear an orange shirt to commemorate the experiences of residential school survivors and their families.

Orange Shirt Day takes place Sept. 30 and was inspired by Phyllis Webstad.

Webstad is an Indigenous woman who had her orange shirt removed during her first day at a residential school in Williams Lake, British Columbia.

Orange Shirt Day was made official in 2013 and first held in this province in 2016.

The Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Regina is putting on a series of events leading up to Sept. 30.
