National Indigenous History Month

June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada, and June 21, the summer solstice, is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is a time for all Canadians, Indigenous, non-Indigenous, settlers, and newcomers, to reflect upon and learn the history, sacrifices, cultures, contributions, and strength of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people.

MAS recognizes the roles of museums in perpetuating colonial practices in Canada, both directly and indirectly, through collection and display practices, policy, and harmful rhetoric. We commit to explore our roles in nurturing meaningful relationships and building understanding. We dedicate our efforts to working together in a spirit of collaboration and reconciliation.

We encourage you to take some time to learn more about First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, upon whose lands we live, work, and play with gratitude. We are all treaty people.
