June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day

On June 21 the College recognizes National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous groups and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on June 21 or around that time of year because of the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.

National Indigenous Peoples Day provides an opportunity to acknowledge the many achievements and contributions of the country’s Indigenous peoples.

National Indigenous Peoples Day allows us to educate ourselves on the lives, cultures, stories and traditions of Nova Scotia’s Mi’kma’ki, people and that of the Indigenous, Inuit and Metis communities throughout Canada.
