National Indigenous History Month (NIHM) is an opportunity to reflect upon and learn about the history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis. It's a time to honour the stories and achievements of Indigenous Peoples, who have lived on this land since time immemorial.

Canada designated June as National Aboriginal History Month in 2009. The name was changed to National Indigenous History Month in 2017.
