Have a look at a history of the National Indigenous Day of Prayer (Indigenous Peoples' Day) here - the Elders advocated for this in 1970, and the United and Anglican Churches adopted these at their respective national gatherings in 1970/71.  

Also, check out this sermon from the Rev. Dr. Ray Aldred (Cree from Swan River Band, Treaty 8), Director of the Indigenous Studies Program at the Vancouver School of Theology.
