St. Boniface Diocesan High School

We at SBDHS and the Archdiocese of St. Boniface acknowledge the school we attend is situated on the ancestral land of the Anishinaabe, Ininew and Dakota Nations. We also acknowledge the significance of this land as the traditional trade and travel routes of the Anish-Ininew and Dene Nations, as well as the homeland of the Metis Nation. We recognize, with respect and gratitude, Shoal Lake 40 First Nation as the source of our drinking water. We are all bound together on these lands by Treaties and we pledge to learn from the mistakes of our past to move forward together in the spirit of reconciliation.

 

National Indigenous People's Day 2022

In this photo, a woman is shown with a traditional Métis sash and fiddle. The fiddle plays an essential role in Métis culture as it accompanies the traditional jig dance, performed at social gatherings. A sash is gifted to a Métis person who has made a meaningful contribution to the Métis Nations. This image depicts a man in traditional regalia that is worn by First Nations dancers, traditionally at Powwows. First Nations people dance to express their culture, history and identity. As part of National Indigenous Peoples Day, we recognize the colourful culture of First Nations people across Canada. This image also shows a man practicing drum dancing as he uses the beat of the drum and body motions to act out traditional stories. Today, on National Indigenous Peoples Day, take time to learn about different Indigenous cultures and their traditions. This is a day to acknowledge and celebrate the diverse Indigenous culture and people in Canada. Although it shouldn’t stop after June 21st! Continue learning and supporting our Indigenous People's of Canada today and everyday.
