It's National Indigenous History Month!
June is National Indigenous History Month. It is a time to recognize the rich history, heritage, resilience, and diversity of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people across Canada.
On Orange Shirt Day in September, children from all across Canada came together to participate in our Orange Shirt Day Event with Coast Salish Author, Courtney Defriend. Courtney read her book If Instead of a Person, and we listened as she explained that at Residential Schools, Indigenous children were not allowed to learn the traditional teachings of their culture. You can access the Event Recording and Resources here.
