June is National Indigenous History Month

June is National Indigenous History Month. We join Peoples across Canada in building relationships, deepening engagement with Indigenous history, and discerning action for healing and reconciliation.

Resources for the month of June can be found below, as well as resources for June 21 – National Indigenous Day of Prayer:

A prayer for National Indigenous History Month:

“Creator, Great Spirit, we thank you for gathering us today to celebrate and honour the Indigenous Peoples of Canada. We recognize the sacredness of the drum, the powerful symbol of unity, healing, and connection to the earth. As we worship, guide us to listen deeply, embrace compassion, and seek understanding. May our journey together strengthen the bonds of unity and foster the spirit of reconciliation. In your holy name, we pray. Amen.”
