June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. On this day, we celebrate and honour the brilliance of Indigenous peoples who continue to build lives and families on these territories.
Indigenous Naming Practices
Naming practices for both places and people in Indigenous cultures differ from that of mainstream Canadian culture. Many Indigenous peoples have a name or names that were gifted to them in ceremony or by family. Generally, Indigenous place names are descriptive, communicating either what the place was (or is) utilized for or its spiritual significance.
