Statement from Ministers Carolyn Bennett, Marc Miller, Daniel Vandal, and Steven Guilbeault on National Indigenous History Month and Indigenous Reads

| Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada | statements

In past years, the month of June has been filled with celebrations and ceremonies that invited all Canadians to learn about the language, culture and history of First Nations, Inuit and Metis people. These in-person events will be greatly missed again in 2021 as we continue to respect public health guidelines and commemorate virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, as with any other, we are encouraging everyone in Canada to engage with Indigenous-created or Indigenous-led information and activities online or by getting involved in the many virtual opportunities to celebrate First Nations, Inuit and Métis cultures.
