National Indigenous Peoples Day
June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada, and today is National Indigenous Peoples Day! For generations, Indigenous communities have celebrated their heritage and culture on June 21 or around this time of year due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year as well as a new season of life.
To celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples of Canada, the R-BLISS team has created an Indigenous Content and Resource List to highlight some Indigenous books, articles, videos, businesses, and more for everyone to engage with today and every day of the year.
Please access the Indigenous Content and Resource List here as a pdf with working hyperlinks:
