June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. It is a day to celebrate the culture and heritage of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. The Federal government first proclaimed June 21 as National Aboriginal Day in 1996; the day was renamed National Indigenous Peoples Day in 2017.

Here are some of the events that will be taking place around the Basin:
