NATIONAL INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY

Recognizing history, traditions and indigenous identities.

First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples deserve more than our respect and acknowledgment of their cultures.

Their countless contributions to the world is just one of the reasons we celebrate indigenous communities on June 21, National Indigenous Peoples Day. It is important that we all learn more and understand history.

We see you. We honour you.

Chief R. Stacey Laforme's poem honours children

Although there is a lot to be celebrated, we must not forget the reality of residential schools.

The horrific discoveries of the remains of hundreds of children found near former residential schools filled our hearts with sorrow. We stand in solidarity with indigenous people.

We would like to share a poem written by Chief Stacey Laforme of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation:
