On June 21st we celebrate National Indigenous Peoples’ Day, mark the Summer Solstice and reflect upon the distinct culture, histories and contributions of Métis, First Nation and Inuit peoples.

Today, we are in a new era of reconciliation and rights recognition. This year marks our 30th anniversary of the MNO and 20-year anniversary of the landmark Powley case. Over the last 30 years, we have worked tirelessly to advance Métis rights and tell our stories.

National Indigenous Peoples’ Day offers all of us an opportunity to share our stories and respect one another.
