The Delta school district on Monday unveiled a new Truth and Reconciliation pole at its administration office as part of Orange Shirt Day commemorations.
Commissioned by the school board, the pole was carved by TFN artist Karl Morgan with the assistance of three other members for the First Nation.
Unveiled after a ceremony, the pole is carved from red cedar and signifies the ongoing reconciliation between the Tsawwassen people and Delta school district.
TFN Chief Ken Baird (pictured) said the pole will create a visual reminder that their people are still here and he thanked the district for helping the First Nation on an important journey of reconciliation.
School board chair Laura Dixon said it will serve as a daily reminder of the teachings and storied history of the TFN.
