The Naramata Centre in collaboration with the Naramata Community Church is handing out a variety of orange flower seeds in memory of the more than 150,000 Indigenous children forced into residential schools. ⠀
The seeds will be handed out today, July 8 between 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Seeds will be available for pickup at two locations: in front of Alberta Hall (on Ellis St.) and at the Naramata Community Church.
“We encourage our community to support and colour our village orange by planting these seeds,” said the Naramata Centre on Facebook.
On Friday, July 9, the Osoyoos Indian Band will be holding a Walk to Remember in Oliver for the 215 children discovered at the Kamloops residential school and the more than 1,000 across Canada discovered since.
The Walk ends with the unveiling of the Osoyoos Indian Band’s Residential School Monument Wall in Oliver.
