On this day, we celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures, outstanding achievements, and valuable contributions to society by the nation’s Indigenous peoples. in Canada, we have 3 Aboriginal groups – the First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples. personally, my family has lineage in the Mi’kmaq First Nations tribe.

This celebratory day is shared by the summer solstice (aka the longest day of the year!). it was specifically chosen as this day because of the important symbolism of the day to many Indigenous peoples. around the country, many celebrate through cultural performances, displays of indigenous art and events.

Many Indigenous communities are also calling upon the federal government to make #NationalIndigenousPeoplesDay a statutory holiday.
