On Saturday, June 23, 2018, join the gathering and celebrate Indigenous cultures with APTN’s Indigenous Day Live in three cities!
Formally National Aboriginal Day, this year marks the first celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day, as we host our celebration in Winnipeg, Toronto and Ottawa.
All Canadians are invited to join us – for free day celebrations and activities as well as a live concert – on location in our host cities, via a live 5-hour TV broadcast, via participating radio stations and online.
History of Indigenous Day Live (IDL)
Indigenous Day Live, formerly Aboriginal Day Live, has been delighting audiences since 2007. This event features some of the biggest names in Indigenous music and television, including JUNO Award winners and on-the-rise artists. It showcases talent from all genres, regions and nations, ensuring the recognition and inclusion of all First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples.
The first show debuted in a park outside the network’s headquarters in downtown Winnipeg and then moved to the historical Forks site in Winnipeg, MB. The celebration evolved to include twin stage performances from different locations across the county, including Yellowknife, Whitehorse, Ottawa, Regina, Iqaluit, Halifax, Edmonton, Montréal and Vancouver. IDL has grown year to year and continues to expand its grassroots reach to Indigenous communities across the country.
