Brandon University lowers flag to mourn Indigenous children

May 31, 2021

Brandon University’s flag is at half-staff as the university community joins in mourning the discovery of 215 Indigenous children’s remains found at a former residential school.

Staff, faculty and students are also encouraged to wear orange all week, and to change their Zoom backgrounds or social media avatars, to honour and remember the victimized children. An Every Child Matters Zoom background is available online at https://www.brandonu.ca/indigenous/resources/orange-shirt-day/.
