Aboriginal Day Live (ADL) is the nation’s largest event in recognition of National Indigenous Day. For 15,000 years, the Aboriginal peoples of Turtle Island have gathered on this sacred day of the summer solstice to celebrate their culture, inspire their children and honour the wisdom of their elders. Through live music, people are brought together in celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ unparalleled contributions to Canada. National Aboriginal Day was first celebrated on June 21, 1996. Now renamed, “National Indigenous Peoples Day”.
