Reconciliation Week is back in Lethbridge and in-person after two years of online and virtual celebrations and events.
Reconciliation is about creating shared understanding and building strong-relationships and respect between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
The opening ceremonies of Reconciliation Week 2022 kick-off on Monday September 26 at 10 a.m. with a flag raising ceremony on the steps of City Hall. Residents will also see City Hall glowing in orange from September 29 – October 4 to draw awareness to the importance of reconciliation in our community.
This year's orange shirt is available at Opokaa'Sin Early Intervention Centre with limited supplies available at the flag raising. Donations can be made to Opokaa'Sin here for those wanting to contribute in return for their orange shirt.
A poster outlining the opportunities to celebration and learn more about reconciliation in our community is available on the City's website as well as on the Reconciliation Lethbridge Facebook page, or here.
