Manitoba First Nations SchoolNet celebrates Indigenous Peoples Day

June 20, 2024


"On Indigenous Peoples Day, we come together to honor and celebrate the rich cultures, histories, and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples across Canada. This day serves as a reminder of the profound and enduring presence of Indigenous communities and their vital role in the fabric of our nation.

As we celebrate, it is also essential to reflect on the history that has shaped the experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Acknowledging the impact of colonization, residential schools, and systemic injustices is a crucial step towards reconciliation. By learning about this history, we can better understand the ongoing challenges faced by Indigenous communities and work together towards a more equitable future.

Indigenous Peoples Day is not only a celebration but also a call to action. It is an opportunity for all Canadians to commit to meaningful change and to support the rights and aspirations of Indigenous peoples. Whether through advocating for policy reforms, supporting Indigenous businesses, or engaging in community initiatives, each of us can play a role in building a future where Indigenous peoples are respected, empowered, and thriving.

Let's celebrate the strength and spirit of Indigenous cultures and honor the invaluable contributions they have made and continue to make to Canada. Happy Indigenous Peoples Day!"
