National Indigenous People’s History Month – June 2024

National Indigenous People's History Month

Indigenous People's Day

June 21 2024

June is National Indigenous People’s History Month and is also the month National Indigenous People’s day happens, on June 21st. In 2009, the Canadian House of Commons designated June as National Indigenous People’s History month as a time to learn and celebrate the many unique cultures of the Inuit, Metis and First Nations People across Canada. In 1996, June 21 was celebrated as Indigenous People’s day after it was proclaimed by the governor general of Canada, Romeo Leblanc.

This month we celebrate and reflect on all the unique and amazing cultures, traditions, and experiences of Indigenous, Metis, Inuit and First Nations people across Turtle Island. Without your wisdom, strength, resilience, and loving spirit, we would not have the country we have today.
