About ACU Orange Shirt
Purchasing with purpose, it’s more than just an orange shirt.
Your purchase means so much to Indigenous communities. Why? In addition to raising funds that support Residential School Survivors, your orange shirt purchase is also supporting a local, Indigenous-owned business. As Indigenous Peoples continue to write their history, Indigenous business owners remain a fundamental piece of Canada's national identity and are helping to build healthy and vibrant communities. By supporting their ventures, we can help amplify their cultural and economic contributions—not just during the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day, but year-round.
The artwork on the ACU orange shirts was created by an Indigenous youth artist, Muriel Waukey.
“My name is Muriel Waukey. I am from Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. Art has always been an outlet for me to express & pour my emotions into something positive. My biggest inspiration for this piece was my nookmis (grandmother). She played such a huge part in my upbringing & loved wholeheartedly. Our mothers were connected to her through umbilical cords before us, as we are connected through our mothers to our grandmothers. So in other words, my grandma carried part of me, and I’ll carry her in my heart for the rest of my life.”
