June is National Indigenous History Month

This month is a time to honour, reflect, celebrate and learn about the history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, the First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Within this month, on June 21, we also commemorate National Indigenous Peoples Day, which coincides with the summer solstice, a culturally significant time when Indigenous Peoples and communities honour their cultures and histories.  It is also a time for all Canadians to connect together to listen, learn and hold space to contemplate the truth, reconcile the past and change the future.  

Whistler Blackcomb operates on the unceded territory of the Lil’wat Nation and the unceded territory of the Squamish Nation. Whistler Blackcomb is working in collaboration with the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre to provide resources for our employees and the community to engage in online and in-person activities, storytelling, and resources to actively learn and celebrate the past and future stewardship with these Nations.    

As we strive to live and model our core value, Be Inclusive, it is important to take a moment to celebrate and elevate the voices and perspectives of those in our company and communities with Indigenous roots. It is also important to recognize our history, reconcile our past and commit to changing the future. Learn more about Indigenous Peoples Day and National Indigenous History Month in Canada.
