ABOUT

On June 21st, Canadians from all walks of life are invited to participate in the many National Indigenous Day events that will be taking place from coast to coast to coast.

On June 13, 1996, the Governor General of Canada proclaimed June 21st to be National Indigenous Day, offering Indigenous peoples an excellent opportunity to share their rich, diverse cultures with family members, neighbours, friends, and visitors.

First Nations, Métis 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!

National Indigenous Day is a fun-filled day for the whole family to enjoy together. National Indigenous Day is an opportunity to learn more about Indigenous people and their contributions to Canada. Share in the Celebration!
