June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada, and June 21 marks National Indigenous Peoples Day.

This month offers an opportunity to grow your understanding of the rich cultures, traditions, and experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples who have lived on these lands since time immemorial.

As settlers and migrants to this land, we must incorporate reconciliation and decolonization into our daily lives. So treat this month as a key step in standing with Indigenous artists and creators and deepening your learning journey through attending community events, reading Indigenous authors, watching films by Indigenous filmmakers, and more.

To support this effort, we’ve assembled highlighted some events and resources at ECU and in the wider community to mark the occasion below.
