Indigenous History Month

Celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21

June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada and June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. These are opportunities for all Canadians to celebrate and learn about the unique culture, traditions and experiences of First Nations, Inuit and Métis. It is a time to honour the stories, achievements and resilience of Indigenous Peoples, who have lived on this land since time immemorial and whose presence continues to impact the evolving Canada. 

The Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors

Canadians can get involved and discover stories, traditions and cultures, explore the past and honour the truth, learn more about present-day communities, and show their support.

In June, individuals, communities and organizations will showcase First Nations, Inuit and Métis historic figures, leaders and cultures on social media using #NIHM2023. Visit for weekly themes, resources, maps and more. On PEI, L’nuey promotes and shares information about Mi’kmaq language, history and culture.
