A banner made of four photos. The first photo shows a group of secondary school students wearing orange Every Child Matters shirts over their school uniforms, for Orange Shirt Day. The second photo shows an Indigenous knowledge keeper showing students how to traditionally prepare a fire during camping trip. The third photo shows a student doing an exercise in class for hand-weaving traditional Indigenous shoes. The fourth photo shows a presentation by the Equity Department at the CEC in collaboration with the Special Education Department, showing a collage of student artwork of Indigenous peoples and culture.

National Indigenous History Month

Banner for National Indigenous History Month. On the top left reads the theme "ALL MY RELATIONS" and below it in the top center "JUNE IS INDIGENOUS HISTORY MONTH." In the middle is a graphic of three Indigenous performers playing music and dancing. On the right of the graphic is the circular logo of the TCDSB, and the circular logo of the TCDSB's Indigenous Education Department. In the bottom centre of the banner is the quote "Let the Spirit descend and renew the face of the earth. This earth." by St. Paul II.

June is recognized as Indigenous History Month by the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB), and June 21 is recognized as National Indigenous Peoples Day.

This is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate the cultural richness and contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.
