About National Indigenous Peoples Day

For generations, many Indigenous people and nations have celebrated their culture and heritage on June 21.

It is a day for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people alike to honour and learn more about the rich cultures, traditions, and lived experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.

More importantly, it is a time for all of us to take action to advance reconciliation.

What you can do

Attend events and activities that celebrate Indigenous stories, and culture within your community. Bring your friends and family, too.

Expand your knowledge of Indigenous Peoples, Colonization, and Decolonization with an Indigenous Awareness course.
