National Indigenous Peoples' Day

Location: Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons - 16164 Highway 12, Midland
Date: Thursday, 18 Jun 2020
Time: 10:00AM - 5:00PM

Canada chose June 21 because of the cultural significance of the summer solstice and because many Indigenous groups mark this day to celebrate their heritage.

In recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day, Sainte-Marie will offer Indigenous singing, drumming and dancing. Indigenous displays and demonstrations include kid’s heritage crafts, waterway and lacrosse demonstrations, Indigenous crafters, and more.
