National Aboriginal Day

Well today is National Aboriginal Day! Happy day to all my Aboriginal/First Nations/Metis/Inuit readers….

Something I learned today about National Aboriginal Day:

  • It was proclaimed in 1996.
  • It is part of an 11-day Celebration to “Celebrate Canada” [Some of the other days are Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (June 24), Canadian Multiculturalism Day (June 27) and concludes with Canada Day (July 1)]

The above points are courtesy INAC opps I mean “Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada”

Something I learned recently, courtesy Facebook, is that June is National Aboriginal History month!

Just writing this post to share some things I found out about this lovely day.

Nothing personal 😉

PS. I am proud to be Aboriginal on this lovely day and every other day!
