Indigenous Solidarity Day at Trout Lake
Join us as we celebrate National Indigenous Day at Trout Lake with a community-based, full day of events set to showcase and celebrate the diversity of Indigenous people across Canada. First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people gather to share their spirit, experiences, stories, songs, art and dance with each other and the general community – with a whole day of entertainment, activities, and fun planned for the whole family. Let’s talk science will be hosting a booth at the kid’s zone where we will be doing hands-n activities like DIY Slime and Candy DNA!
