National Aboriginal Day

Ste Marie celebrating with event-filled day

It is National Aboriginal Day – celebrating the cultures and contributions to Canada of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. June 21 is chosen for this celebration because of the cultural significance of the summer solstice and because many Aboriginal groups mark this day to celebrate their heritage. Ste Marie Among The Hurons in Midland is celebrating with a number of special events and hands-on demonstrations from First Nations singing, drumming and dancing to displays and demonstrations including kid’s heritage crafts, waterway and lacrosse demonstrations, Native crafters, and more.
