In Canada, June is celebrated as National Indigenous History Month, with June 21 recognized as National Indigenous Peoples Day. During this month, Canadians “honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. It is also an opportunity to recognize the strength of present-day Indigenous communities” (from https://www.rcaanc-cirnac.gc.ca/eng/1559222623218/1559222644174).
