Father’s Day – Sunday, June 19, 2022
On Father’s Day we celebrate fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the positive influences of fathers in society. For those of us who do not have a father to celebrate, or a heathy relationship with their father, we honor the positive male or non-binary role models in our lives.
National Indigenous Peoples Day – Tuesday, June 21
June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. In the Okanagan, we celebrate with the many peoples of the unceded ancestral territories of the Syilx Okanagan Nation Alliance, including Upper Nicola Band (UNB), Okanagan Indian Band (OKIB), Westbank First Nation (WFN), Penticton Indian Band (PIB), Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB), Lower Similkameen Indian Band (LSIB), and Colville Confederated Tribes (CCT).
