National Aboriginal Day on June 21 kick starts Celebrate Canada!, an 11 day celebration that also includes Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (June 24), Canadian Multiculturalism Day (June 27) and concludes with Canada Day (July 1)!
From Huffington Post Canada:
National Aboriginal Day is coming up on June 21.
It’s a chance for Canadians and indigenous people to reflect on the contributions, culture and achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Metis people across the country.
Indigenous communities across Canada have produced many inspiring voices over the years, such as artists, singers, authors and politicians.
These voices influence opinion, policy and perception, while progressively staking out a strong place for themselves in Canadian public life.
