The City of Camrose and Augustana celebrated National Aboriginal Day on June 21 with storytelling and traditional Indigenous dancing.

On June 21, the University of Alberta’s Augustana campus played host to the city of Camrose’s National Aboriginal Day Celebrations. Alongside the Augustana campus and Camrose community, over 1600 elementary and junior high school students attended sessions throughout the day which included storytelling by Elder Myrna Yellowbird of Samson Cree Nation, followed by traditional Aboriginal dancing, performed by Red Thunder the Next Generation, a group from the Tsuu T’ina Nation. The day allowed visitors the chance to experience and celebrate Indigenous culture and heritage and was an enormous success. If you weren’t able to make it out to see the celebration in person, check out the photo recap below!
