Our 2022 Native Northwest Orange Shirt features a unique design by Ts’msyen (Tsimshian) artist Morgan Asoyuf with the words “Every Child Matters” inscribed in the centre.

“Children are to be honoured, loved and respected and encouraged to thrive. This shirt reflects the multi generational impact of Residential Schools and the resilience of those who survived.”

We wear orange shirts to honour the children who did not make it home from Residential Schools, all survivors, and their families.

Proceeds from Native Northwest orange shirt sales will be directed to the Native Northwest Reconciliation Fund to support people and families who continue to be impacted by Residential Schools and intergenerational trauma. Its purpose is to advance Reconciliation by funding initiatives that support Indigenous wellness, learning, and culture. In its first year, Orange shirt and orange sticker proceeds have already funded 200+ scholarships for Indigenous students at 20+ post-secondary institutions, in addition to supporting BC Aboriginal Childcare Society, Urban Native Youth Association, Aboriginal Headstart Association of BC, and more. Thank you for supporting Orange Shirt Day.

Also available in adult sizes.

The Royal Museum Shop is operated by the Royal BC Museum Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of merchandise go directly towards supporting the many fine programs and special events at the Royal BC Museum.
