On June 21, Waterloo will celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day. This day recognizes the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples of Canada. National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada has cultural significance as the summer solstice. 

Our celebration will include a temporary public art installation by local artists August Swinson and Luke Swinson. Together, August and Luke will be painting an art installation on Waterloo Public Square to denote the significance of the day. A thanks giving address will be given at 4:00 p.m.
