High River joins communities across Canada to recognize and celebrate the history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis on National Indigenous Peoples Day. We recognize the history, contributions and role of Indigenous people in our community and the Treaty 7 area.

“Canada’s National Indigenous Peoples Day gives us a chance to recognize the many achievements of the Country’s Indigenous peoples. This day also celebrates the distinct cultures and unique traditions of these native communities.” Mayor Craig Snodgrass, Council Official Proclamation

First celebrated in 1996, this day coincides with the longest day of the year - Summer Solstice. National Indigenous Peoples Day is part of the Celebrate Canada program, which also includes Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day on June 24, Canadian Multiculturalism Day on June 27 and Canada Day on July 1.
