National Indigenous Peoples Day
June 21 marks the annual recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day. Previously called National Aboriginal Day, it is an official day to celebrate the culture and contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities in what is currently referred to as Canada. June 21 was chosen because of its alignment with the summer solstice, which is a significant day to the many Indigenous Peoples and communities who have celebrated on this day for generations.
