National Indigenous History Month

Join us this June as we acknowledge National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day with opportunities to learn, engage, and celebrate.

In collaboration with the Mamaway Wiidokdaadwin Primary Care Team from the Barrie Area Native Advisory CircleBarrie Native Friendship Centre, the Downtown Barrie BIA, and the Barrie Public Library​​, we celebrate the rich heritage, diverse cultures, and significant contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples with a variety of exciting programs throughout the month of June.

Funded in part by the Government of Canada.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg people, which include the Odawa, Ojibwe, and Pottawatomi Nations collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy. We also acknowledge the Wendat Nation (Huron) who occupied these lands prior to the middle of the 17th century.

We are dedicated to honouring Indigenous history and culture and recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples on this land. We are committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and respect with all First Nations, Métis, and Inuit People.
