National Indigenous Peoples Day, formerly known as Aboriginal Day, is celebrated every June 21st all across Canada. In the Northwest Territories, it's a statutory holiday. In every community in the territory, you'll find festivities that include cultural demonstrations, live music, artwork and traditional food, all to honour and recognize the Métis, Inuit and First Nations people who've made the North their home for centuries.

It covers an area of over 27,000 square kilometres and at some points is over 600 metres deep.
