National Indigenous History Month










 

June is National Indigenous History Month and June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day.

As we enter National Indigenous History Month, it is important for all Canadians to honour and learn about the history, heritage and diverse culture and the many contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples across Canada.

National Indigenous History Month offers us the chance to learn more about the first peoples of these lands, their histories, lived experiences and the roles these stories play in the country we call, Canada.


This is a time not only to celebrate, but also the opportunity to reflect on the atrocities and injustices suffered by Indigenous people, many of which continue to this day.

This month of recognition includes the continuing discovery of mass grave sites at residential schools. This is heartbreaking reminder of just how far our nation is from reconciliation. Our story is robust and predates Canada by millennia. As part of learning more , this month offers us to walk the path toward Truth and reconciliation together.
