National Indigenous History Month

June is National Indigenous History Month, a time to reflect and celebrate the contributions, culture, diversity, and history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. 

Each year, National Indigenous Peoples Day is celebrated on June 21 to celebrate and honour the rich diversity and traditions of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis nations.

We recognize that reconciliation is an ongoing journey and that we need to continue to expand our knowledge and understanding of the past and the issues that Indigenous communities face today. 

Check out our Indigenous Library Resources, and our research guide on Indigenous Studies.
