City looking for new partners for OKI signs in 2024

Partnership, community building and celebration of Blackfoot language and culture are front and centre as the City of Lethbridge is looking to continue the successful OKI sign project.

Last fall during Reconciliation Week, the City of Lethbridge together with community partners, unveiled six unique OKI signs which are now permanently hosted at each organization.

Following on from this successful project, the City is looking to partner with new organizations that would like to have their own OKI sign. Interested organizations need to be able to demonstrate how their organization is working towards Reconciliation locally and identify opportunities to integrate Blackfoot culture and language into their regular business activities.





Applications are now open and the deadline to submit is January 15, 2024. Information and details are available here on the City’s website.


Indigenous artists interested in submitting designs for the second phase of the OKI Sign project can expect to see a public invitation for expressions of interest in the new year.
