To honour the important role First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities have in Canada, June was declared National Aboriginal History Month. Many events take place celebrating aboriginal heritage, from music and culture festivities to places where Canadians can learn more about aboriginal history
What does that mean?
It means that during June, Aboriginal history is brought to the forefront in Canada. It is a month for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to reflect upon the history, sacrifices, contributions, culture and strength of First Nations, Inuit and Metis people.
There are several events taking place in Canada throughout the month. Our film, YYC Colours, is also being screened on June 24 at the artBox at 6pm, as part of an event during the month. Please feel free to come out. We will have a panel discussion after the event.
