APTN's Aboriginal Day Live and Celebration

Saturday, June 21, 2014 - 04:00

APTN’s Aboriginal Day Live & Celebration, an annual celebration of National Aboriginal Day and the summer solstice, has been delighting audiences since 2007. This event features some of the biggest names in Aboriginal music and television, including JUNO Award winners and up-and-coming artists; showcases talent from all genres, regions and nations; and ensures the recognition and inclusion of all First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples.

It debuted in a park outside of APTN’s headquarters in downtown Winnipeg and moved to the historical Forks site in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The celebration evolved to include twin stage performances from different locations across the country – including Yellowknife, Whitehorse, Ottawa, Regina and Iqaluit. APTN’s Aboriginal Day Live & Celebration has grown year to year and continues to expand its grassroots reach to Aboriginal communities across the country.

Interactive content, live streaming, trivia, polls and APTN Webstage Pass™ – APTN brings the celebration to Canada through the LIVE event, LIVE broadcast, radio waves, and via online and mobile devices.

There is no question, after seven years, the event continues to shine bigger, better and brighter.

In 2014, APTN’s Aboriginal Day Live & Celebration will be celebrating the uniqueness and diversity of our Peoples – LIVE and online – from The Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba and from our twin stage in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
