BELLEVILLE – National Aboriginal Day is a time for cultural awareness and celebration in the Tyendinaga community, says the director of the Tsi Tyonnheht Onwawenna Language & Cutural Centre, Callie Hill.
“People look forward to that day,” she said. “It’s a time to share meals, play games and just have fun.”
This Saturday, June 21, will be the 19th annual National Aboriginal Day in Canada. Previously titled National Aboriginal Solidarity Day, it is an occasion to recognize the accomplishments, contributions and heritage of Métis, Inuit and First Nations peoples throughout the country.
