Did you know that Canada added a special new national holiday? In this episode, we learn about the new holiday that falls on September 30th and why it’s important we remember what happened to Indigenous children in Indian residential schools.

There are some difficult issues covered in this episode, so parents and teachers should listen to together with children.
