June is recognized as National Indigenous History Month. To commemorate this occasion, CFRU is featuring a series of programs today from 10am to 6pm highlighting Indigenous voices from throughout North America, and programming that highlights the ongoing legacy of settler colonialism and Indigenous resistance. (Please note that some programs include subject matter that may be triggering for some listeners.)
CFRU acknowledges that it is located on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabek Peoples and the traditional territory of the Attawandaron people.

PNIAI was one of the first independently organized, self-managed Indigenous artists’ collectives and cultural advocacy groups in Canada and is credited with bringing First Nations art to the forefront of Canada’s art world.]
