National Aboriginal Day!

Tomorrow marks  the celebration of National Aboriginal Day! I can’t believe a year has passed by already. At the last celebration I had the chance to meet both old and new friends, but that seems so recent. National Aboriginal Day was proclaimed to be an annual celebration by the Governor General of Canada, Roméo-Adrien LeBlanc, back in 1996 after the first celebration.  However, the Assembly of First Nations really drove to make this day an annual celebration beforehand. Their work started back in 1982, and came into fruition in 1996 (Information taken from the National Aboriginal Day History Pamphlet, link below).

But enough about history, we here at Them Days hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow, as we do every day.  Be sure to partake in any festivities at your local community if you can make it! It’s always a rewarding experience.
