In Canada, June 21st is National Aboriginal Day. It is a time to honor and celebrate the rich and diverse cultures of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, the Indigenous Peoples in Canada. I am most familiar with First Nations culture in British Columbia (BC) as I have been to several traditional powwows over the last 20 years. In BC, there are over 200 First Nations each with their traditions and language. Approximately 60% of the First Nations languages in Canada are spoken in the province.
