Celebrating Indigenous History

June is National Indigenous History Month. Throughout this month, we recognize, honour, and celebrate the diverse cultures, heritage, languages, traditions, and achievements of all First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.

This year, each week of National Indigenous History Month will be dedicated to a different theme. The themes highlight Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQI+ people; the environment, traditional knowledge, and territory; children and youth; languages, cultures, and art; and reconciliation. Keep an eye on this page and follow along with NNPBC on social media as we celebrate each of these themes throughout June.

National Indigenous Peoples Day: June 21

For generations, many Indigenous communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near June 21 due to its significance as the summer solstice and longest day of the year. In 1996, in alliance with Indigenous organizations and communities, the Government of Canada proclaimed June 21 as National Indigenous Peoples Day (then National Aboriginal Day) so that all Canadians could participate by learning more about the cultures, customs, lands, and traditions of Indigenous peoples.
