How does MCoS support National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day?
The Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan envisions a Saskatchewan where Multiculturalism is central to the cultural, social, economic, and political life of Saskatchewan. Our mission is committed to promoting, fostering, improving and developing multiculturalism in the cultural, social, economic, and political life of Saskatchewan while working to achieve equality of all residents.
Notably, we have a strategic objective to recognize the special contributions which First Nations and Métis people provide to our province and encourage cultural competency and intercultural connections. MCoS has developed programming such as BRIDGES and INVOLVE that bring Newcomers and Indigenous people together to build relationships and break down barriers. We recognize that we are all treaty people and we regularly engage in anti-racism education and reconciliation activities. We are proud and honoured to celebrate National Indigenous History Month each June and National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21 each year.
