June is National Indigenous History Month
June 21- National Indigenous Peoples Day
Throughout June, we continue to highlight and honour the outstanding contributions of Indigenous peoples while recognizing the histories and vitality of present-day Indigenous communities. It is a month for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to reflect upon the histories, contributions and resilience of Inuit, First Nations and Métis people. Learning accurate histories and recognizing the contributions and strength of Indigenous Peoples is one of the many steps on our journey of reconciliation.
