Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21st (Solstice), was a full day of celebration with Saugeen First Nation and surrounding community.

The day began at dawn with the sunrise ceremony and lighting of the Sacred Fire and continued with a community breakfast and celebration at Saugeen’s Wesley United Church courtyard.

From the morning celebrations, everyone gathered at G. C. Huston Public School, the Home of the Hawks, for lunch and a tour of the Grandfather Teaching doors before heading to the ‘Bridge naming Ceremony’ at the Saugeen River.
