In honour and celebration of Indigenous History Month the Canadian Shield Regional Council’s Right Relations Team have been sending out a weekly newsletter and other resources to celebrate and learn about the historic and current contributions that Indigenous People continue to make in our regions. Curated by our summer student, Hannah McCallum, we hope that you will find these resources interesting and useful!  
The third installment of the Indigenous History Month newsletter is attached to this email. 
This week’s theme, to fit with Indigenous People’s Day, is celebration! June 21st is a day of joy and happiness and a time to honor the many vibrant and diverse Indigenous cultures and peoples on Turtle Island. 
For those who enjoy music, a special podcast for Indigenous People’s Day has been created. It includes even more book recommendations and music, and will introduce you to some great music by Indigenous artists – hosted by Hannah McCallum.
