Aboriginal Day June 21st

A cause to celebrate at Coastal Peoples Gallery!

 

Today is National Aboriginal Day, Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year.

While indigenous peoples across Canada gather together in celebration of National Aboriginal Day they also celebrate the Summer Solstice. Summer is associated with growth and maturation, and this is the time to reap the crops that have been sown.  The cycles of nature remind us that we are a part of creation. The Summer Solstice reminds us how precious every day is and not to take it for granted. The Sun represents summer.

 

Coastal Peoples Gallery located in Vancouver, BC showcases stunning artworks by First Nations from British Columbia, Plains artists from Alberta and Manitoba, and the Inuit from the territory of Nunavut.  Explore our summer solstice collection including works by Susan Point and many other wonderful First Nation artists. It is also significant to note that Coastal Peoples Gallery represents our logo as the sun.  In Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations culture the Sun symbolizes life and how everything revolves around it. In folklore the Sun represents a creative force that brings with it warmth, healing and energy.
