National Indigenous Peoples Day

Sunday June 21st is National Indigenous People’s Day in Canada.  This is a day to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.  Like other celebrations during the pandemic we are challenged to find new ways to honour this important day while staying safe.
