National Indigenous Peoples Day and FNHA Day of Wellness events


June is National Aboriginal History Month and June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day (National Aboriginal Day), with many opportunities to celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. 

Many local events on June 21 were supported by Day of Wellness grants from the First Nations Health Authority. An interactive map of local events across the province.
