National Indigenous Peoples Day - June 21

​National Indigenous Peoples Day 

June 21​


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

In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.

Across Frontier School Division and in many of our communities, there are celebrations being held on both Thursday  June 21 and Saturday June 23. For more information
