The Town of Huntsville is proud to announce their annual celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day with a special event on the evening of June 21, 2018.

“It is important for our community to recognize and respect indigenous people and lands,” said Mayor Scott Aitchison. “Events like this which educate and raise awareness are a marker of the progressive, inclusive and caring kind of town that Huntsville is today.”

Huntsville has been celebrating June 21 annually with various events and indigenous partners since 2002. The 2018 event is on Huntsville’s 2018 theme of “Good Governance: It Takes a Village.” The free public presentation, “Anishinaabe History as Told Through Wampum Belts” presented by Brian Charles, will be held in the Algonquin Theatre starting at 6:30 pm on Thursday June 21.
