This year in Thompson, First Nations, Inuit and Métis people from our region will gather at MacLean Park on June 21st to celebrate with traditional dancing, songs, art and food. It is a fun-filled day for the whole family to enjoy together and is also an opportunity to learn more about Indigenous people and their contributions to Canada and to have all share in their celebrations. The MKO National Indigenous Peoples Day Planning committee is once again preparing to bring the celebrations alive in our community with the following; * Sunrise Pipe Ceremony * Free Pancake & Sausage Brunch * Free Community Fish Fry * Free Hot Dogs * Children's Activities * Local Youth Drum Group * Indigenous Dancers/Performers/Music/Entertainers * Story Tellers/Oral History/Funny Indigenous Tales *National Indigenous Day 2018, Soaring Eagle Awards.
