Also, National Indigenous Peoples Day takes place on June 21st of every year. It began in
1996 and was originally called National Aboriginal Day. The day commemorates and
honours First Nations, Inuit, and Métis People’s cultures, histories, and contributions to
Canada. June 21st was chosen because it is the longest day of the year and has long
been celebrated by Indigenous Peoples.
This day is an opportunity to recognize the historic contributions of Indigenous Peoples
to the development of Canada. There are many ways to celebrate the day but as
June is also National Indigenous History Month there is an opportunity to learn about
Indigenous history and to deepen our understanding of Indigenous people and their
role in the present-day and future of Canada all month long
I hope you take a moment to listen to the song below.
Singer: Buffy Sainte-Marie Song- You Got to Run (Spirit of theWind)
Buffy Sainte-Maire was born as Beverly Sainte-Marie on Feb. 20, 1941, on the
Piapot Cree Indigenous reserve in the Qu’Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan.
Sainte-Marie’s fearless social commentary and advocating for Indigenous issues,
both in her songs and in her life, have earned her many devoted fans and the
respect of her musical peers.
