National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day, a day to celebrate the culture, heritage and contributions of Indigenous Peoples.

We encourage everyone to take part in the Indigenous Histories and Reconciliation module to learn more about:

  • Treaties and dynamics between settlers and Indigenous peoples;
  • Residential schools;
  • Assimilationist policies;
  • Missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls;
  • Decolonization;
  • Intergenerational trauma; and
  • Resiliency of Indigenous communities.

Students and staff can access the modules on DC Connect, and members of the community can access the modules on the Durham College website. Everyone will receive recognition of completion.

Find other ways to learn more with videos about or by Indigenous Peoples in our library collection.
