About the event

June 21 was chosen to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day because of the indigenous peoples' traditional celebrations that are held on the summer solstice. 

It's important to remember that there are many unique cultures and traditions held throughout the country. For example, three Indigenous peoples groups exist in Canada: the Inuit, First Nations, and Metis. Recent statistics put their population at just under 1.7 million. National Indigenous Peoples Day is an excellent opportunity to brush up on the three distinct heritage groups that make up the country's native population.
