June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day. The Culture Alliance acknowledges that this is a day to learn about the traditions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. It is a time to connect physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as we celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding contributions of First Nation, Inuit, and Métis peoples.
This day seeks to bring awareness to the unique culture and traditions and the contributions made by Indigenous peoples, not only in the Heart of Georgian Bay, but also across all of Canada.
Strive to learn more about Indigenous peoples and their cultures by participating in events around the region, finding films and learning experiences that increase your knowledge, and going out dancing, drumming, and celebrating with a feast.
The Culture Alliance exists to build bridges, recognizing that culture is not bound or restricted by any geographic or municipal boundary, and instead created collaboratively through positive partnerships.
The Culture Alliance is comprised of Beausoleil First Nation, the Town of Midland, the Town of Penetanguishene, the Township of Tay and the Township of Tiny. Together we are celebrating, fostering, promoting, and leveraging our unique cultural resources in the Heart of Georgian Bay with a view to growing a prosperous year-round creative economy, and enhancing the quality of life and cultural awareness for all residents and visitors.
