June 21, 2014, indigenous peoples day, also known as Aboriginal day. This is a day to celebrate the indigenous peoples of Canada, who we are, our culture, our language, our rights and our contributions to what is now called Canada.
Today is the day we set aside to honour and respect all the women who brought us life, mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and women who treat us like their sons and daughters and we consider as a mother. We would not be here today if it was not for our mother’s.
A controversy and political backlash has arisen over the contents of Bill C-33 the so called “First Nations Control over First Nations Education Act” since it was tabled in parliament on April 10, 2014.
