June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day

Communities across Canada are gearing up to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day.  On June 21st, Canadians can celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples from coast to coast to coast.

According to the Government of Canada, the Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous peoples. Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.

June 21st is also the summer solstice. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.
