National Indigenous Peoples Day

  • The eagle to represent the First Nations peoples
  • The narwhal to represent the Inuit peoples
  • The violin to represent the Métis peoples

Smoke is used in different ways by all three Indigenous groups in Canada. Whether it is to smoke fish and meat, to burn sage and tobacco or for sacred ceremonies or celebrations, it is a significant symbol in Indigenous cultures.
