Every June 21, Canadians come together to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day, an opportunity to honour the rich cultures and contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in Canada.
There are many ways you can also celebrate the culture and contributions of Indigenous peoples today and beyond, including:
- Explore learning resources about First Nations, Inuit and Métis across Canada
- Download and share National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day images to show your support
- Check out the #IndigenousReads reading list, compiled by Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada
- Join the conversation on social media with the hashtag #NIPD2023
CMHA Ottawa encourages our community to take time today to learn about and honour Indigenous cultures, both locally and nationally.
