Here is a link to the original story on the team's website.
VANCOUVER, BC – Nat Bailey Stadium – home of the Vancouver Canadians – sits on the lands of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. The Canadians, in partnership with Coastal First Nations and Rogers Communications, will pay homage to the people of those lands on Thursday, July 14 when they host their inaugural Indigenous Peoples Night.
The festivities will begin well before first pitch. Traditional music and dance will be performed at the ballpark entrance from 5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. The on-field pregame welcome ceremony will be led by Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations leaders.
In conjunction with the Indian Residential School Survivors Society, 20 residential school survivors and their families have been invited to the game and 20 athletes from the Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council will take the field with the C’s starting lineup as part of the Baseball Buddies program.
All Canadians game day staff will be wearing HstryMkrs “Every Childs Matters” orange t-shirts in solidarity with the theme of the night. The shirts will be available for presale and on site during the game with 100% of the proceeds benefitting residential school survivors. Shirts are available for presale now by clicking here.
The C’s extend their gratitude to Coastal First Nations for their consultation, guidance and support in launching this yearly event.
