Statement of Solidarity

This t-shirt, designed by Tsimshian artist Morgan Asoyuf, is a visual reminder that all children have rights, deserve to be loved, and that Every Child Matters. Partial proceeds will go to support the work of Orange Shirt Society and the BC Aboriginal Child Care Association. Preorder here.

At this time of mourning and tragedy on the discovery of the graves of 215 children on the grounds of the Kamloops residential school, the Art Gallery of Alberta shares the sorrow and grief of the people of the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation. Our thoughts are with the families, survivors and all of those who are in mourning across the country. 

 We support Indigenous communities in the call for truth, reconciliation and for full investigations into the abuse of the residential school system in Canada with all information being transparently shared with the families. We also acknowledge the role museums have played in our colonial history and reaffirm our commitment to raising awareness about the harms committed against Indigenous peoples, while we work to further understanding through our actions, programs and exhibitions.
