Indigenous Solidarity Day is June 21

Celebrate and recognize Indigenous Solidarity Day by attending an Indigenous-led event near you.

June 21 is Indigenous Solidarity Day, also known as National Indigenous Peoples Day, in Canada. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of Indigenous peoples not only in the Carolinian Zone, but also across Canada.

We call on our network to support, listen, learn and take action to understand Canada's colonial history and how these impacts show up in many ways, including on the land. We encourage and aim to assist our network to strengthen connections with people and the land because Truth and Reconciliation is critical to everyone's future.
