NFMC Celebrates National Indigenous Month (JUNE)

June is National Indigenous History Month. NFMC is proud to work closely with the first nation communities of Biigtigong Nishnaabeg and Netmizaagamig Nishnaabeg. Each week, throughout the month of June, NFMC will share information to recognize and celebrate the history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis across Canada.
Week #1- According to the World Council of Indigenous Peoples: “Around the world, many First Peoples prefer the term “Indigenous” to describe themselves, as opposed to terms such as “Indian”, “Native”, and “Aboriginal”, which are colonial terms. Indigenous is a collective noun in Canada for First Nations, Inuit, and Metis.”
