Upcoming Online Events for National Indigenous Peoples Day

Sunday, June 21, 2020 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. We encourage everyone in Saskatchewan to celebrate and recognize the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. 

Although this years celebrations will look a little differently than previous years, as SPRA's Inclusion and Access Consultant, I wanted to share a few of the great, virtual events happening provincially in recognition and celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day:
