Students and staff at Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWPSD) are gearing up to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on Tuesday. National Indigenous Peoples Day, celebrated annually on June 21, is a day for Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contribution to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.

This year, students throughout PWPSD will participate in a number of activities including Indigenous games and art projects, and have the chance to enjoy some delicious food. 

Throughout the month of June, PWPSD’s Indigenous Education Services team has been hosting Culture Camps for schools throughout the Division. The Culture Camps teach students about drumming, plants as medicine, and traditional active games.
