National Indigenous Day 2021

🌞"Today.. the arc of the sun will be as high as it will ever be during the entire year, because it marks a time known as the summer solstice. Solstice is a combination of the Latin words "sol," meaning "sun" and "sistere," meaning "to stand still."

🌞Early humans knew that on this day the sun would stop climbing higher and higher in the sky, and, having reached its highest point, would "stand still" before it steadily carved out lower and lower arcs in the sky... Pisim Ekakacit...It was also known as KITCIKISIKAW...because of the length" of time Pisim stayed in the sky.
