A trio of award-winning aboriginal singers is coming to St. Albert next week to sing O Canada as part of National Aboriginal Day – and they’ll be doing it in three languages.

June 21 is National Aboriginal Day in St. Albert, where hundreds of city residents come out to Lions Park to learn about Canada’s first peoples and take in some free entertainment.

City residents will get a preview of this year’s event today at the opening of the St. Albert Farmers’ Market, says Libby Szarka, president of the St. Albert National Aboriginal Day Society.

Poundmaker’s cultural adviser Clayton Saskatchewan shall bless the market in a traditional First Nations smudge ceremony, and Edmonton hoop dancer Kelsey Woolver will demonstrate the hoop dance.
