June 21st Is National Indigenous Peoples Day

Celebrate the heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis in the classroom, school, and school community

 

June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day! Celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day at your school by learning about Indigenous Peoples, becoming more involved in the Indigenous community, and incorporating Indigenous culture into the school environment.
