National Indigenous Peoples Day 2020
We are thankful for the land on which we are able to work, live, and play and give thanks and acknowledgement to the traditional territory of the Blackfoot peoples and for the many First Nation, Métis, and Inuit who now call this place home.
We have included a list of suggestions on how to celebrate or commemorate this meaningful day:
