A message from CSFS CEO Warner Adam about Orange Shirt Day and National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

September 29, 2021

“Hadih, 

As we are about to spend time tomorrow in some somber reflection of all that we have come through as Indigenous people, I would like to humbly thank you – all of you in the communities we serve. I am thankful to your leadership, our elders, matriarchs, clients and most of all our children that provide the direction for our guidance and the reasons for hope in moving forward.

Tomorrow will mark the first federally recognized Day of Truth and Reconciliation, and international recognition of our efforts, many years in the making, for positive steps towards respect, acknowledgement and self-jurisdiction. This work is far from over, but our efforts are taking root. None of this work would be possible without your support, the resiliency of our people, and the strength of our Carrier and Sekani cultural ways to guide us. Thank you all – in Takla, Lake Babine Nation, Yekooche, Nadleh, Saik'uz, Stellat'en, Nee Tahi Buhn, Cheslatta, Skin Tyee, Burns Lake Band, Wet'suwet'en and in Prince George.

As I reflect tomorrow, on the past and think about what the future may bring – I feel positive about our people, I feel proud of Carrier Sekani Family Services and the work all our staff do to serve communities, and I am certain that our peoples and our cultures will thrive as we work together on doing so.

Mussi Cho, 

Warner Adam”
