June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day (#NIPD), which celebrates the culture, heritage, societal contributions and resilience of First Nations, Inuit and Métis across the country.

Indigenous Tourism BC has compiled a list of some key NIPD events in BC, which you can find here. Many are free. We encourage you to check out these or other events where you live.

We’d also like to highlight the work of two of our community partners:
