Indigenous Peoples Day
Today is national Indigenous Peoples Day. It is a day to celebrate, remember, learn and walk together.
It's held on the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year, and a date that holds cultural, historical and spiritual significance for Indigenous Peoples. Indigenous Peoples Day is often marked by events, ceremony, and families gathering in their communities throughout Canada.
