National Celebration of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples event at Riverside Park on June 21

About National Celebration

Since 1996, many First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21 during summer solstice. Additionally, June is National Indigenous History Month—a time for all Canadians to reflect upon and learn the history, cultures, contributions and resilience of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples.

In Guelph, this event is planned by local First Nations, Inuit and Métis leaders with support from the City of Guelph’s Museums and Culture division.

Marilyn Couture shared photos of the event to the Caught in Guelph Community where to date it’s garnered over 600 likes.
