City of Brampton Celebrates National Indigenous People’s Day
Brampton celebrates the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis each year on National Indigenous Peoples Day.
The City of Brampton recognizes and acknowledges that our work takes place on the Treaty Territory of the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation, and before them, the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee (hau-de-no-sau-nee), Huron and Wendat (Ou-en-dat). We also acknowledge the many First Nations, Metis, Inuit and other global Indigenous people that now call Brampton home. We are honoured to live, work on and enjoy this land.
This month is an opportunity to reflect on and learn about the heritage, diverse cultures, distinctive languages, and the spiritual beliefs of Indigenous peoples, as well as their exceptional contributions (past and present) that continue to enrich our community.
We commemorate those who have tragically been impacted or lost their lives through systemic injustices and mourn the loss of all the children whose remains have been discovered at the site of residential schools. We stand in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples and reinforce our commitment to reconciliation.
2022 event details coming soon!
