Born in Brantford, the location of one of Canada's largest residential schools, he has deep ties to Canada's largest reserve The Six Nations of the Grand River where his family have been principals and teachers for 50 years. He's been hired by more than 4000 schools to educate their students and with over 23 years of experience, Q-MACK will engage, educate, and entertain your entire student body leaving them with a powerful message they'll remember for a lifetime.

ON A TIGHTER BUDGET? EXPERIENCE OUR VIRTUAL ORANGE SHIRT DAY ASSEMBLY!
Our acclaimed Virtual Orange Shirt Day Assembly enables you to view the presentation at your convenience as a full school event or in individual classroom settings. Your school's personal link can be purchased for only $299 allowing your entire student body to participate. Last year we had over 100,000 students experience our powerful virtual assembly assisting us in raising $17,000 for our selected Indigenous charities The Woodland Cultural Centre in Ontario and The Orange Shirt Society in British Columbia.
Hosted by First Nations NBA Entertainer Q-MACK on location from The Six Nations of the Grand River, your students will learn the true meaning of Orange Shirt Day from the founder Phyllis Webstad herself. In a unique combination of story telling, music, and sports, this powerful assembly also celebrates the fact reconciliation is enabling us to heal and begin to move forward.
Suitable for Kindergarten to Grade 8, the overall tone of the assembly is 80% of a sombre detailed remembrance and 20% celebratory in nature with the live performances dedicated to the memory of the lost Indigenous students. This keeps the students engaged and provides short bursts of entertainment to enable the younger grades to keep focus for the entire hour.
