Celebrate National Indigenous History Month
June is National Indigenous History Month, a time earmarked by the Canadian government to learn more about Indigenous history, cultures and perspectives. At KAIROS we encourage year long learning – including the impacts of colonization in Canada – in parallel with active efforts to decolonize and work towards reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.
What began as “National Aboriginal History Month” in 2009, became “National Indigenous History Month” in 2017.
We encourage you to visit Indigenous-led organizations to learn more about the history, world views and cultures of Indigenous peoples in Canada, and participate in events near you.
