June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day

Leduc County is proud to recognize National Indigenous Peoples Day.

National Indigenous Peoples Day is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the heritage, culture and contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples.

In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.
