“Today is National Indigenous Peoples Day. In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for the observation. National Indigenous Peoples day is a time for all Canadians to acknowledge and celebrate the unique history, diverse cultures, and remarkable contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. “

“By learning about Indigenous history in our communities and across the country, we can all play a role in dismantling the systemic racism, inequality, and discrimination that Indigenous Peoples continue to face today,” – Justin Trudeau

The Daily Hive released a great article and is sharing a selection of books they recommend reading this month, and all year that will continue to educate yourself. Check it out HERE
