This your guide to celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21


On June 21, it’s National Indigenous Peoples Day – a day recognizing and celebrating the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Indigenous peoples of Canada. On this day, relationships are about listening, learning and connecting to the Indigenous culture and peoples of Canada.

The pandemic means we’re going to have to celebrate a little differently this year. We have put together a list of places to visit, such as public art pieces, installations and sculptures, restaurants, music and arts, virtual events, movies and documentaries, as well as books and literature.
