June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada.
Canadians celebrate National Indigenous History Month to honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. It is also an opportunity to recognize the strength of present-day Indigenous communities.
The history of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples is the history of our country, as they are the first peoples of Canada and continue to play important roles in its development and its future. Learn more about the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
