CMHA celebrates National Indigenous Peoples Day 


Every June 21, Canadians come together to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day, an
opportunity to honour the rich cultures and contributions of Canada’s First Nations, Inuit, and
Métis peoples.
CMHA Thunder Bay supports local Indigenous-led activities throughout our community and so can you. Take part, celebrate and enjoy the culture and contributions of our Anishinaabe community by:

Proclamation at City Hall

Anemki Wajiw

Sunrise Ceremony on Mount McKay

Stream the first six episodes of Waa Nish Kaan, a collaboration between students at Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School and CBC, about the origins of the Wake the Giant Music Festival

There are many ways you can also celebrate the culture and contributions of Indigenous
peoples today and beyond, including:
• Explore learning resources about First Nations, Inuit and Métis across Canada
• Download and share National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous
Peoples Day images to show your support.
• Check out the #IndigenousReads reading list, compiled by Crown-Indigenous Relations
and Northern Affairs Canada
• Join the conversation on social media with the hashtag #NIPD2023
CMHA Thunder Bay encourages our community to take time today to learn about and honour
Indigenous cultures, both locally and nationally.
