What does National Aboriginal Day mean to you?
"National Aboriginal Day is a celebration of my culture. It is a day celebrating a large part of my identity in the world and a day in which to reflect on my great fortune of being from such a rich and storied background. It's a reminder that I share something special with all my fellow indigenous people and that is my heritage and that is one of the greatest honours of all. Indigenous is how I identify myself and I do it with the highest esteem for my culture and beaming with pride." - Chad Lavallee
