WHEREAS: Across Canada, the day is marked by ceremonies and celebrations that highlight cultural performers and activities, displays of arts and crafts, and events that recognize the contributions by Aboriginal people;

THEREFORE, I, Johannes Lampe, President of Nunatsiavut, do hereby proclaim June 21 to be National Indigenous Peoples Day in Nunatsiavut.
