It was over twenty years ago that the first National Indigenous People’s Day was held. Today, we continue that tradition by recognizing and celebrating the rich cultures and contributions of First Nations, the Inuit, and the Métis Nation across British Columbia and Canada.
This day has a great cultural significance for many Indigenous peoples because it also marks the Summer Solstice. Indigenous communities across British Columbia and Canada will gather to celebrate the beginning of the traditional summer harvest season and reflect on their culture, heritage, and history.
If you attended an event in your area, you can share your pictures and stories with the BC Liberal Indigenous Network using the hashtag #BCLPIN on Twitter and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BCLPIN
On behalf of the BC Liberal Party, I wish everyone a Happy National Indigenous People’s Day.
President, BC Liberal Indigenous Network
