Commemorating National Indigenous Peoples Day
Hello, Aanii, Bonjour,
Today, we commemorate National Indigenous Peoples Day. A time of celebration, to be sure, but also an important time for reflection.
This year’s commemoration is muted for a number of reasons, particularly the distance necessitated by the pandemic. Usually we would be able to celebrate collectively; this will have to wait a while longer. We all look forward to the day where we can safely gather to mark this occasion.
This year’s National Indigenous Peoples Day also comes in the wake of recent painful revelations. They are reminders of how damaging the events in Canada’s history have been to Indigenous peoples. We must continue to do more, not out of guilt or blame — but in deciding to take an active role and be a part of the solution.
It is in that spirit that I encourage you to view a message from Eli Lorney Bob as he reflects on what this day means to him. Additionally, take a moment for your own self-reflection and share your thoughts via the Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter social media platforms (#reflectionsonNIPD). We must all do our part to support Reconciliation.
Thank you, Merci, Miigwech
Robert Haché, Ph.D.
