National Indigenous History Month

June is National Indigenous History Month, a time to deepen our understanding of history, diverse cultures, and the many notable contributions of the Indigenous community. With the recent news of the 215 children remains discovered at Kamloops residential school we’re reminded of the historical tragedies that have a lasting impact on Indigenous communities every day. It is important to take this opportunity to learn and reflect on the pivotal role Indigenous communities hold in enriching Canada. Below are some ways you can show support and educate yourself on the significance of National Indigenous History Month.
