June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day 2022 in Canada



June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

Celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day in school gives students, some of whom will know little about Indigenous peoples, the chance to look at their nation’s history from a new perspective.

It's also great time to start your learning journey. Learn with us this day, this month and all year long.


At LCCC we strive to amplify First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples whether it’s through learning about history, traditions, art, food recipes and stories.
