June is National Indigenous History Month. It is a time for all Canadians to reflect on the unique histories, sacrifices, cultures, contributions, and strengths of our First Nations, Inuit, and Metis Peoples – because only by understanding our past can we hope to create a brighter future.

National Indigenous History Month invites Indigenous Peoples to celebrate their history in the spirit of pride and preservation. For non-Indigenous Canadians, it is an opportunity to learn and show recognition of the role Indigenous Peoples have played and continue to play in shaping Canada.

Hometown proud!  Check out these amazing books written by Kimberly Krebs!  Kimberly is the daughter of Susie Krebs (Davidson) and granddaughter of Harley and Fjola Davidson.  You may have heard of her Uncle, Andrew?  This family should be very proud of its successful authors!

Kimberly’s first book, “Sarah and her BIG Dreams” was inspired by her own BIG dreams of traveling the world and having exciting adventures, and encourages kids to always believe in themselves.

“Little Monsters” reinforces that having an imagination is wonderful but having a positive imagination is even more magical.

These books are beautifully written and illustrated and available at the PPL!

June is Pride Month in Canada. It is a time when we celebrate the diversity of LGBTQ+ communities, while acknowledging their history, the hardships they have endured and the progress that has been made.  Pride Winnipeg is a celebration that has been running since 1987 and celebrates fights, victories and reasons to be proud.
