National Indigenous History Month
National Indigenous History Month

Honouring National Indigenous History Month

Each June, Canadians celebrate the history, heritage, and diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples as part of both National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21). Inspired by the efforts of The National Indian Brotherhood (now the Assembly of First Nations), the month and day coincide with the Summer Solstice, which is a traditional time of celebration for many Indigenous communities. National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day are a time to walk together as we reflect, engage, celebrate, and learn.
