June 21st, the day of summer solstice, is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. 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.
SD59 will celebrate with a Zoom Around the District highlighting all the great achievements honouring Indigenous peoples. Activities will continue at schools throughout the day. Everyone is welcome to attend a free BBQ at DCSS-South Peace Campus from 4:30 to 6:30 to help celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day.
