National Indigenous Peoples Day
June 21st is marked as National Indigenous Peoples Day. It is a day to celebrate the Inuit, Metis, and First Nations cultures, and the tremendous achievements of their peoples. Each group has their own heritage, beliefs, language and traditions. June 21 is traditionally the summer solstice which is the longest day of the year; it is a day that has great significance to many communities.
Due to social distancing, there may not be the opportunity to gather in celebration, but there is still the virtual aspect that we can all enjoy.
