It is a day for Canadians everywhere to show pride in their country’s history and culture. While it may be referred to as Canada’s birthday, we are 155 years old this year, it’s equally important to acknowledge and celebrate our country’s indigenous culture and its pivotal role in Canada’s rich history before 1867. We acknowledge the traditional land which we reside upon is Treaty Six Territory. What was the treaty? Read about it here: https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/treaty-6.
It is important we continue to learn about Canada’s Indigenous People; here are two sites you may find helpful:
Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada: https://indigenouspeoplesatlasofcanada.ca/article/frequently-asked-questions-metis/
Alberta School Councils: https://www.albertaschoolcouncils.ca/public/download/documents/57305
A line used often by a friend is, “If you have been born in Canada, you have already won the lottery of Life!” We have much to celebrate as a country.
