Just checked the time… it’s soup o’clock over here 🤤🤤🤤#caitscafe ...

Me thinks it’s a lovely day for one of our fall teas: Organic Apple Cranberry

This blend was a runner-up in our tea tasting contest a few years back. Now- it’s on our menu for the cooler months.

A beautiful blend of Ontario apples, rose hips and cranberry extract - this tea is a delight for both kids and adults. Lightly sweet and slightly tart, this tisane is both healthy and refreshing.

Everyone, please welcome one of three fall/ winter teas that have joined the family:
🎃 Organic Pumpkin Ashwagandha 🎃

Fresh from the pumpkin patch! Our Organic Pumpkin Ashwagandha blend is designed to taste like a warming pumpkin pie with the added benefits of adaptogens like Ashwagandha and Tulsi.

Adaptogens are said to help the body to fight stress, promote a sense of calm and concentration while reducing blood pressure and cortisol levels.

Combined with warming Ayurvedic spices like cardamom, ginger and cinnamon, this tea is perfect any time of day! Pairs well with a cozy sweater. #caitscafe

It’s a vibe. #caitscafe ...

Today is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. For everyone who comes into the cafe wearing an orange shirt, we will donate $10 to the Downie & Wenjack Fund.

The aim of this day is to give time and space to reflect and learn more about the history and ongoing legacy of residential schools.

Here is Phyllis (Jack) Webstad’s story in her own words, and why we wear Orange Shirts today:

“I went to the Mission for one school year in 1973/1974. I had just turned 6 years old. I lived with my grandmother on the Dog Creek reserve. We never had very much money, but somehow my granny managed to buy me a new outfit to go to the Mission school. I remember going to Robinson’s store and picking out a shiny orange shirt. It had string laced up in front, and was so bright and exciting – just like I felt to be going to school!

When I got to the Mission, they stripped me, and took away my clothes, including the orange shirt! I never wore it again. I didn’t understand why they wouldn’t give it back to me, it was mine! The color orange has always reminded me of that and how my feelings didn’t matter, how no one cared and how I felt like I was worth nothing. All of us little children were crying and no one cared.

I was 13.8 years old and in grade 8 when my son Jeremy was born. Because my grandmother and mother both attended residential school for 10 years each, I never knew what a parent was supposed to be like. With the help of my aunt, Agness Jack, I was able to raise my son and have him know me as his mother.

I went to a treatment centre for healing when I was 27 and have been on this healing journey since then. I finally get it, that the feeling of worthlessness and insignificance, ingrained in me from my first day at the mission, affected the way I lived my life for many years. Even now, when I know nothing could be further than the truth, I still sometimes feel that I don’t matter. Even with all the work I’ve done!

I am honored to be able to tell my story so that others may benefit and understand, and maybe other survivors will feel comfortable enough to share their stories.”

Both the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day take place on September 30. For everyone who comes into the cafe wearing an orange shirt tomorrow, we will donate $10 to the Downie & Wenjack Fund.

Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day that honours the children who survived Indian Residential Schools and remembers those who did not.

On September 30, it is encouraged that all Canadians wear orange to raise awareness of the very tragic legacy of residential schools, and to honour the thousands of Survivors.

Former Residential School students can call 1-866-925-4419 for emotional crisis referral services and information on other health supports from the Government of Canada.

Indigenous peoples across Canada can also go to The Hope for Wellness Help Line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for counselling and crisis intervention.

Call the toll-free Help Line at 1-855-242-3310 #orangeshirtday2021
