Ebene News – CA – Moose FM Joins Canadian Broadcasters to Amplify Indigenous Voices with “A Day to Listen”

FORT ST JEAN, BC – Radio stations across Canada including Moose FM meet on Wednesday to amplify Indigenous voices with A Day to Listen

In recognition of National Indigenous History Month, over 400 radio stations across the country dedicate a full day of programming to share stories from Indigenous leaders, residential school survivors, elders, musicians and teachers

In partnership with the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF), A Day To Listen aims to “amplify, uplift, listen and learn indigenous voices”

“Many Canadians were shocked to learn that the remains of 215 children buried in Kamloops and now increasing in number at other residential school sites, which Indigenous communities have known and shared for years,” said said Sarah Midanik, president of &, Gord Downie & Fund Chanie Wenjack

“We hope that A Day To Listen and the continued work we do at DWF opens a new chapter in our journey towards reconciliation so that no Canadian is ever shocked by the horrors inflicted on Indigenous peoples again.”

The day of collaboration follows the discovery of the remains of 215 children who were buried in a former Kamloops Indian Residential School, and a growing number of remains found at former Indian Residential School sites across Canada
