National Aboriginal Day is an opportunity to celebrate the Aboriginal culture and learn more about the stories and triumphs of First Nations, Métis and Inuit people. June 21 was chosen because of the cultural significance of the summer solstice (first day of summer and longest day of the year) and because many Aboriginal groups mark this day as a time to celebrate their heritage. Setting aside a day for Aboriginal Peoples is part of the wider recognition of Aboriginal Peoples' important place within the fabric of Canada and their ongoing contributions as First Peoples.
