June is Indigenous History Month and this Sunday, June 30, is being recognized by many communities across the country as Indigenous Survivors' Day.

Recently, Mayor Kogon signed a proclamation officially designating June 30, 2024, as Indigenous Survivors' Day in Amherst, acknowledging the enduring historical injustices faced by Indigenous peoples, providing a significant opportunity to recognize and honour the resilience, strength, and cultural heritage of Indigenous communities that have endured historical traumas, and helping to create a platform for healing, education, and dialogue.
