. Break bread, laugh and learn: How to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CBC – June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada. First celebrated in 1996, the day — which falls on the summer solstice — is meant to recognize and honour First Nations, Inuit and Métis cultures.

The last couple of years have been difficult, the author said. “Not just with COVID, but I’m thinking particularly about the 215 children found at the Kamloops Indian Residential School.”

Findings in May 2021 at the site of the former residential school in British Columbia showed 215 potential burial sites. Since then, similar discoveries have been made at a number of residential school sites across the country.
