TDSB Celebrates National Indigenous History Month: June 2024

Categories: News News Releases

June is National Indigenous History Month and June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day.  It is a time to celebrate and learn from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples’ diverse cultures, histories, experiences, creations, perspectives, and achievements.

Join the Urban Indigenous Education Centre (UIEC) throughout the month of June for opportunities for staff and students to engage with Indigenous artists, authors, and speakers through various virtual workshops and panel discussions.

All month long, the UIEC is hosting several events and celebrations with David A. Robertson, Alyssa and Conlin Delbaere-Sawchuk, Theola Ross, as well as Two-Spirit & Indigiqueer Pride launched by Elder Blu Water.

On Friday, June 21, the TDSB recognizes National Indigenous Peoples Day.  This is a day of significance for many Indigenous Peoples in the country we call Canada today. It marks the day when the Sun is closest to the Earth. It is the longest day of the year and the shortest night. Many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples celebrate the Summer Solstice. It is a time that reminds us to remain grounded, humble and appreciative. It is usually celebrated by coming together with family and community for a feast.
