Mark your calendars and get prepared to be a part of our meaningful Orange Shirt Day Event that honors our past and builds bridges for the future. Pokaiks – The Children Commemorative Walk and Gathering 2023 is a tribute to survivors of the Residential School System and Sixties Scoop, held annually on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

The walk will begin at 11 am at City Hall and continue to Shaw Millenium Park. This will be followed by traditional drumming and dancing performances, remarks from members of the Indigenous community, artisan and community booths, food and beverage offerings, and other engaging activities, that will bring further awareness to actions Calgarians can take to participate in reconciliation.
