June is the month, which Canadians celebrate Aboriginal History! This month is meant to recognize and honour the heritage, contributions and cultures of the Aboriginal people in Canada.
Aboriginal History Month allows us to acknowledge both the historical contributions of the aboriginal people, but also the surviving strength of existing Aboriginal communities. It enables us to pay hommage to these communities and the guiding light they provide for the future. In celebrating National Aboriginal History month you take part in paying tribute to the diverse heritage of our Aboriginal communities across Canada.
Today is National Aboriginal Day and we hope you find a way to celebrate! Come visit MOA down at Oppenheimer Park today between 11:00 am – 6:00 pm. We will be giving out bananas with the MOA logo on them and MOA bookmarks!
Happy Aboriginal Day to all!
