On National Indigenous Peoples Day (formerly named National Aboriginal Day), Canadians recognize the contributions of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. The holiday is observed on June 21 each year because this date often coincides with the summer solstice, when many indigenous peoples celebrate their culture and heritage.
