Indigenous Cultural Centre Feasibility Study
Based on needs and opportunities previously identified by the City and its community partners, Lethbridge City Council approved the Indigenous Cultural Centre Feasibility Study in the 2018-2027 Capital Improvement Program. The focus of this Study is to come to shared understanding about the focus, users, governance and operations of a possible future Indigenous Cultural Centre in Lethbridge. The project is currently ongoing and is scheduled to conclude early in 2020.

The Heart of our City and Reconciliation Lethbridge Advisory Committees recently partnered to celebrate 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages by showcasing Blackfoot language in the Downtown and broader community. Keep your eyes open in the Downtown for our OKI greeting sign, and show your commitment to reconciliation by learning more about Blackfoot language and culture.

The City of Lethbridge has also produced a resource to help you learn about reconciliation and basic Blackfoot vocabulary.
