Commemorating National Indigenous Peoples Day 2021

PREVNet is located at Queen’s University, situated on traditional, unceded Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory. As settlers, we are grateful for the opportunity to meet, work, and play here, and we thank the generations of Indigenous peoples who have taken care of this land since time immemorial.

June 21, 2021 marks the 25th anniversary National Indigenous Peoples Day. However, many Indigenous communities have celebrated the summer solstice and their culture and heritage at this time of year for generations. While Indigenous groups each have their own heritage, language, cultural practices, and spiritual beliefs, National Indigenous Peoples Day allows the nation to recognize the importance of all Indigenous communities and celebrate Indigenous people as a whole.
