Today we like to acknowledge together as we celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day who have lived on this land for untold generations and will do so for generations to come that we as a society need to respect them help them and learn to lessen that in the past and never happen again. We at Selfadvocatenet extend our thoughts priors those were in residential schools that were abused even those indigenous people have disabilities had a deal with a negative impact on lives it was so wrong unacceptable

What is National Indigenous Peoples Day?
June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This 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. The Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous peoples.
Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.
In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. 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.
