Following the 6 AM send-off of the participants of the Remembrance Run, we invite everyone to gather at the Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum for remembrances and prayers to honor all those who never returned home from Indian Boarding Schools. As a group, we will walk to the Dot So La Lee Cemetery which served as the burial grounds during the 90-year existence of the Stewart Indian School.
• Wear Orange to honor the children who never returned home.
• We will support the ongoing process of healing and reconciliation for boarding school survivors, their families, and their relatives.
• We will start conversations on all aspects of Indian Boarding Schools and reaffirm the survivors and their legacies.
