As we begin the month of June and the start of the summer months, we will move towards Summer Solstice on June 21st, a most sacred month for Indigenous people. We celebrate June as National Indigenous History Month.
Despite the recent tragedies that have affected Indigenous peoples and their ancestors with the challenges encountered, we recognize their resilience and we celebrate and honour their gifts and the rich and unique history of Canada’s First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples.
It is also a time for celebrating the strength of Indigenous individuals striving to create positive change in our communities and in Canada at large.
In partnership with local Indigenous communities, please join us in recognizing the impressive individuals who contribute to the diverse mosaic of our university and School and city which is located on the ancestral, unsurrendered and unceded territory of the Algonquin people.
