Samson Cree Nation singer, actress and artist Kiya Bruno sang O Canada in Cree and English at the Toronto Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre June 29 in honour of National Indigenous Peoples day.

It’s the third year that the Blue Jays have celebrated National Indigenous Peoples Day. The first time the national anthem was sang in an Indigenous language at a Blue Jays game was the Moodie sisters in 1999, and Bruno may be the only person to do it since then.

Bruno wore a beaded Blue Jays medallion for the occasion.
