National Aboriginal Day – June 21st

National Aboriginal Day is a day to celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of Aboriginal peoples in Canada.

In support of National Aboriginal Day, visitors to Fundy National Park and Kouchibouguac National Park in New Brunswick are invited to meet local Aboriginal artists and learn more about New Brunswick's Aboriginal culture and heritage. Artists will be on-site between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

In Alberta, there will be Blackfoot elders who will tell stories about the plains buffalo culture, and there will be drumming and dancing, guided facility tours, a live display of Alberta Birds of Prey, traditional hand game demonstrations, and aboriginal food sampling.

There are events all across the county today, and to see what else is available, go to
