National Indigenous Peoples Day takes place on the summer solstice, a day that indigenous communities have traditionally celebrated their culture and heritage throughout their history. This is a day for all Canadians to celebrate the contributions of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities all over Canada.
National Indigenous Peoples Day is a fantastic way to start learning more about the traditions and culture of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada. Not only the rich and beautiful history but the on-going traditions. Across Canada there are celebrations and opportunities for Canadians of all backgrounds to join in learning opportunities, reconciliation events and traditional observances.
For the week of June 21, below are only some of the events being held in and around Calgary:
In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
