National Indigenous Peoples Day

Posted on:


June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day, a time to recognize and celebrate the beautifully rich and diverse cultures and contributions of Indigenous People.

National Indigenous Peoples Day falls on the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year. It is a day of significance, as Indigenous Peoples and communities have honoured their culture and history on the summer solstice for generations. 

This Indigenous Peoples Day, we'd like to share a few words from the NGPS Wellness Team:

To all the First Nations, Métis & Inuit people who travelled and cared for these lands long before us. To the Knowledge Keepers who continue to show grace and patience while they educate others on their traditions & beliefs. Thank you. Thank you to those who are no longer here in the physical world, but whose spirit continues to influence and guide those left behind and remind us of the power that exists in the presence of connection & belonging.
