Pictou Landing First Nation celebrated National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21. It is a day recognizing and celebrating the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Indigenous peoples in Canada.

There were lots of activities and fun to be had in Pictou Landing with crafts, games, face painting and demonstrations.
