New Canadian Postage Stamp to be released June 21, 2022

Posted on Jun 15, 2022

Canada Post is releasing a commemorative Indigenous Leaders stamp recognizing Metis leader Harry Daniels. This is very special for our Indigenous Worker, Lisa Sowinski, because Harry Daniels was her mother's second cousin.  

On Monday, Daniels’ friends and family gathered to share stories and celebrate the accomplishments of the former Regina Beach resident. The design of the stamp was later revealed, showing a portrait of Daniels with a traditional Metis sash behind him.

The stamp is being released on June 21 to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day. Daniels’ stamp is part of a series called the Indigenous Leaders stamp series that also will celebrate Jose Kusugak and Chief Marie-Anne Day Walker-Pelletier.

Daniels died in 2004 but his accomplishments are still celebrated today.

Daniels was an advocate for Metis and non-status Indians, successfully arguing that the federal government should consider them as Indigenous Peoples in the Constitution Act 1982.
