Blackfoot Confederacy flag raised in Lethbridge in observance of National Indigenous Peoples Day
The Blackfoot Confederacy flag was raised Monday morning at Lethbridge City Hall to honour National Indigenous Peoples Day. A ceremony at the city centre consisted of speeches from dignitaries, and traditional dancing. Indigenous Relations Coordinator for the City, Pamela Beebe, describes the meaning of the flag and why it is important that it be raised.
New permanent flag poles are being installed outside of Lethbridge City Hall, which will allow for the Reconciliation and Blackfoot flags to be able to fly permanently.
