National Indigenous Peoples Day Is Sunday, June 21

Released on June 19, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan would like to encourage all Saskatchewan citizens to recognize and honour National Indigenous Peoples Day this Sunday, June 21.

“Indigenous peoples are a fundamental part of the history, identity and future of this land we all share called Saskatchewan,” Minister Responsible for First Nations, Métis and Northern Affairs Lori Carr said.  “This special day recognizes the past and ongoing contributions made by First Nations and Métis peoples to build this province and to make it better, one step at a time.”

National Indigenous Peoples Day is an opportunity for all Canadians to recognize Indigenous contributions.  First proclaimed in 1996, National Indigenous Peoples Day falls on or near the first day of summer and the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year.

The province’s very name also comes from the Cree word for the Saskatchewan River, “Kisiskatchewanisipi” or “swift-flowing river.”  Treaties 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 cover the province, which is also the home of the Métis.

As part of National Indigenous History Month this June, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum is streaming a special series of online programs to recognize the unique cultures and contributions of the Indigenous peoples of Saskatchewan.

In light of COVID-19, the public is encouraged to enjoy and share their celebrations while respecting the public health orders of the day.
