National Indigenous Peoples Day

National Indigenous Peoples Day is a day to celebrate the diverse history, heritage, cultures, and contributions of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples of Turtle Island.

This day intentionally coincides with the summer solstice-the longest day of the year, on which many Indigenous Peoples celebrate Mother Earth’s gifts.
