National Indigenous Peoples Day - Today is National Indigenous Peoples Day and June is National Indigenous History Month. Two great reasons to learn more about the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and histories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. It is also a time of sorrow and acknowledgement as there is much more to learn and do towards truth and reconciliation.
The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional land of diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/Saulteaux/Anishinaabe. We also acknowledge all of the Indigenous, Inuit and Métis peoples who make Alberta their home today.
