Aboriginal Day

On June 13, 1996, the Governor General of Canada proclaimed June 21st to be National Aboriginal Day, a national holiday set aside for Aboriginal peoples to celebrate and share the rich heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding achievements of Canada’s First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples.

National Aboriginal Day celebrations are held each year across Canada.  These nationwide celebrations include a variety of activities, including traditional feasts and barbeques, many of which include the sharing of a variety of traditional foods, information sharing sessions related to aboriginal history, heritage, and culture, and traditional and contemporary song and dance.

The Pabineau First Nation happily celebrates National Aboriginal Day each year by bringing together its community members for a large community Aboriginal Day feast, which includes a variety of traditional foods, a barbecue, commemorative cake, and an array of indoor and outdoor activities for the young and old.
