Join the celebration for National Indigenous Peoples Month & Day!

Happy National Indigenous Peoples Month!

The festivities begin today with a welcome that will kick off a month of events, including National Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations at Royal Roads on June 21.

I hope you will join in this truly wonderful and growing event on the traditional Lands of Lekwungen and Xwsepsum ancestors and families. It will be a special one this year. You can really feel just how much it means to families and friends to gather in laughter, love and learning — and to honour one another.

A heartfelt thank you to RRU Director of Indigenous Engagement Asma-na-hi Antoine and partners throughout the region who pull together to make this celebration of Indigenous heritage, culture and connection happen.
