Senators share why Indigenous History Month is important to them
June 13, 2019

Indigenous History Month is an opportunity to celebrate the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples nationwide.

Celebrated every June, the commemorative month pays special tribute to the contributions of Indigenous peoples who helped shape our country.

To mark Indigenous History Month, Senator Dennis Glen Patterson explains why it is important for all Canadians and shares how his experience in the North shapes the work he does in the Senate.


Senators Murray Sinclair and Dan Christmas sat down for a heart-to-heart conversation about reconciliation, the importance of Indigenous History Month for all Canadians and how their Indigenous identities shape the work they do in the Senate.


Check back here next week as Senator Yvonne Boyer, of the Métis Nation of Ontario, will share her reflections on Indigenous History Month.
