National Aboriginal History Month

In June, Canadians celebrate Aboriginal History Month, an opportunity to honour the heritage, contribution, and cultures of Aboriginal peoples in Canada.
June has long been a month of celebration and remembrance in Canada, with National Aboriginal Day on the 21st, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day on the 24th, and Multiculturalism Day on the 27th. It is a fitting tribute to the heritage and diversity of First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities across Canada that this month in particular was chosen.
Aboriginal History Month is an opportunity not only to recognize the historic contributions of Aboriginal peoples to the development of Canada, but also the strength of present-day Aboriginal communities and their promise for the future.
