Hi Trail Talk 2019

Are you ready? Today is not only the first day of summer — it’s National Indigenous Peoples Day!

For generations, First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities have celebrated their rich heritage on the summer solstice, a day that holds great spiritual significance in Indigenous cultures as it’s the longest day of the year, and the day that Mother Earth comes back to life.

Take your pick from many interactive events along the Trail that will allow you to deeply connect with Canada’s history by learning about our land and culture through listening to the voices of great storytellers and knowledge keepers.

Get out there this Friday (and all weekend!) and enjoy live music, theatre, dance, cultural workshops and culinary experiences. Keep reading for a taste of educational and fun local ways to get out in the community and experience it for yourself...
