National Aboriginal Day was established to celebrate Canada’s First Peoples and our important contributions to Canada.
This past winter and spring our Cree youth undertook a heroic march to emphasize the importance of unity among Aboriginal peoples. It is fitting that we honour the Nishiiyuu walkers for their accomplishments.
They have shown everyone in this country that the energy of our youth can be positive and inspiring. They have inspired Aboriginal people and many Canadians across this country.
This journey reminded us of the importance of protecting our lands for the future generations to come. The rights of aboriginal peoples across the country must be recognized and translated into benefits for all our peoples.
We encourage the youth to continue using their energies to achieve honourable visions for our people and for aboriginal peoples across the country.
Happy Aboriginal Day.
Grand Chief Dr. Matthew Coon Come
Deputy Grand Chief Ashley Iserhoff
HAPPY ABORIGINAL DAY TO ALL.
