National Indigenous History Month

National Indigenous History Month is recognized in Canada throughout the month of June. It celebrates the diverse history and culture of Indigenous Peoples across Turtle Island, now known as North America. It honours the unique traditions and experiences within Indigenous communities, and recognizes the contributions made by Indigenous Peoples. It also serves as a reminder to amplify their voices and experiences.  

On June 21, the summer solstice, we celebrate National Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which recognizes the heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples across the country.  

Daily Bread Food Bank is proud to support several agencies that serve and empower Indigenous communities. In addition to food programs, these agencies also offer resources for health, wellness, counselling, and housing. Many also offer cultural connections and enhanced programming where Indigenous traditions are celebrated through workshops, dance, music and films.  

If you would like to learn more about the programs and services offered by some of our member agencies to support Indigenous communities, please visit:
