National Aboriginal Day

Did you know Canada.. coming up on June 21st is National Aboriginal Day!

It was on June 13, 1996, that the Governor General of Canada proclaimed June 21st to be National Aboriginal Day (NAD), offering Aboriginal peoples an excellent opportunity to share their rich, diverse cultures with family members, neighbours, friends and visitors.

First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit people will gather to celebrate and share with spectacular dance, song and theatrical performances both contemporary and traditional that will bring you to your feet! Each year a different organization takes the lead on NAD activities within the NCR. This year, the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami is the lead organization.

Visit here for a list of events and celebrations happening in your area!
