National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21, 2020 is National Indigenous Peoples Day and June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada. The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada joins Canadians in commemorating this important day and month. We recognize the historical treatment, and past and current struggles of the Indigenous peoples of Canada and are grateful for their strength and resilience throughout the centuries. We are committed to listening, learning, and building healthier relationships with Indigenous communities in Canada. We encourage our members to celebrate this day, honour this month, and engage with our Indigenous neighbours.
