People in Canada celebrate National Indigenous History Month every June and recognize National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21. These are great opportunities to acknowledge Indigenous Peoples, to learn about their histories, cultures and ways of life.

Join the celebrations this June by attending special events in Alberta. Also continue reaching out through the year to build stronger relationships and greater understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

Learn about Indigenous Peoples

Use the following resources to learn about Indigenous Peoples:

  • Aboriginal Peoples of Alberta: yesterday, today and tomorrow provides a glimpse into the culture, history, issues, and future opportunities of Indigenous Peoples.
  • The Blackfoot Digital Library has information about Blackfoot people and culture. The site contains images, audio, videos and documents collected during the past century.
  • LearnAlberta (français) offers educational resources related to First Nations, Métis and Inuit perspectives and experiences, including residential schools and Treaties. Resources correlate to Alberta programs of study.
  • Empowering the Spirit includes educational resources to deepen understanding of First Nations, Métis and Inuit perspectives on literacy and numeracy. The resources are the result of a partnership between Alberta Education and the Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortium.

Also consider local Indigenous community resources that may be available through a local Native Friendship Centre, or First Nation or Métis local office.


Events will be posted closer to National Indigenous History Month.
