Students at Muskoka Falls Public School celebrated National Aboriginal Day and were able to learn about a wide variety of topics through different station activities. The day also focused on Feeding All Four. Activities included:

National Aboriginal Day is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. The Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous Peoples. Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.
