National Indigenous People’s Day is returning to an in-person format following two years of virtual events.
Organizer Gina Spence with MKO says the day is an opportunity for people to learn about Indigenous culture, history, and languages.
Activities taking place over the course of the day include the sunrise pipe ceremony, the Soaring Eagle Awards, and the raising of the Indigenous flag at City Hall.
Here, Spence shares where the event will be taking place.
“So this year will be at McLean Park at City Hall and it will be on June 21st, 2022, which is Tuesday. We’re welcoming anybody and everybody to all of our events to learn and to have fun.”
