National Indigenous Peoples Day was held earlier this week on Tuesday, June 21st, and Dakota Tipi First Nation celebrated in honour of the day.
The day was one for Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, cultures and outstanding contributions of the Indigenous.
The day involved prayer, dancing and food at the Dakota Tipi Health Centre.
Rain Handel, the cook and the pow wow instructor at the event, says the importance of this day was for many reasons, but teaching the youth to be proud of who they are and where they came from was big for her.
