National Indigenous Peoples Day
National Indigenous Peoples Day is June 21st. Join us in celebrating and learning more about Indigenous heritage and culture.
Our main focus this year is around the medicine wheel, and honouring each of the four quadrants —Physical, Emotional, Spiritual and Mental.
The Medicine Wheel models interconnectedness and a holistic approach to understanding.
Students and staff will learn through a variety of activities, including: Pow wow videos and sweats, stories and art, and ceremony and talking circles.
