June commemorates National Indigenous Heritage Month. This is a time for everyone to reflect upon and learn the history, cultures, contributions, and strength of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people. Indigenous Peoples need to celebrate their history because doing so helps to stop the loss and grow their cultures. Celebrating their history invigorates pride in being Indigenous and maintains the preservation of their cultures, protocols, spirituality, traditions, and languages.
