National Aboriginal Day

First Nations people have been celebrating who we are and our culture since time immemorial. When the Federal government banned the potlatch and ceremonies from 1884-1951, our culture had to go underground but was still practiced when possible.

June 21st, a day set aside to celebrate the aboriginal peoples of this land. For many aboriginal people and their governments and organizations, this is a statutory holiday so their staff can participate in the many celebrations that go on around the province.
