    June 21st, 2011 is the summer solstice AND National Aboriginal Day!!! The National Indian Brotherhood (now the Assembly of First Nations) originally called for the creation of a National Aboriginal Day back in 1982. From these early discussions, June 21st, the summer solstice, was chosen as the date for this celebration because so many Aboriginal cultures and communities already celebrated their culture and heritage on that day. Finally in 1996 June 21st was officially declared National Aboriginal Day by the Governor General at the time, Romeo LeBlanc.
