Dear Tsleil-Waututh Community Members,
September 30th, 2021 will mark the first observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
On this day, Thursday, September 30th, the Tsleil-Waututh Nation Administration Offices, ćećǝwǝt lelǝm (TWN Helping House) and siʔáḿθɘt (TWN School) will be closed.
For the first time, Canadians will take this day to commemorate the legacy of residential schools, fulfilling one of many recommendations made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
We know that members of our Tsleil-Waututh community will continue to do the good and meaningful work we have always done. We will check on our survivors and their family members, listen to and share our truths, and continue to bring awareness to our struggles and our strengths, as we move forward in healing.
