Community members gather to honour the signing of Treaty 7 in Lethbridge

September 22 marks the day that Treaty 7 was signed. The agreement, which was penned in 1887, was between the Crown and five bands in southern Alberta. Lethbridge is situated on the lands of the Blackfoot people of the Canadian Plains. 

 

In recognition of the day, Tourism Lethbridge hosted an event to honour the signing. It consisted of an Elder Prayer, a Tipi walk-through, and a Round Dance. 

 

The signing of Treaty 7 falls on the same week that the City of Lethbridge is honouring Truth and Reconciliation.
