Members of the community along with City staff gathered outside City Hall on Monday morning to permanently raise the Blackfoot Confederacy Flag. The flag is another step for Truth and Reconciliation commitments made by the city. The flag raising kicks off a week of celebrations in honour of Reconciliation Week.
Reconciliation Lethbridge Advisory Committee Co-Chair, Treena Tallow, says seeing the Blackfoot Confederacy flag flying in front of City Hall today is really special.
“The permanence of having Indigenous representation where the decision makers of our community hold office shows the commitment to reconciliation by the City and the welcomes conversation by the community.”
Truth and Reconciliation Day falls on Sept. 30. For a full list of activities and events, visit the City of Lethbridge’s website.
