National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples' Day
Every June, we celebrate National Indigenous History Month, which is an opportunity to honour the unique heritage, outstanding contributions, and diverse cultures of First Nation, Inuit, and Métis communities across Turtle Island. On June 21, we honour National Indigenous Peoples' Day.
The Town of Canmore is located within Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta, the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Îyârhe Nakoda (Stoney Nakoda) – comprised of the Bearspaw First Nation, Chiniki First Nation, and Goodstoney First Nations – as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Blackfoot Confederacy comprised of the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai.
We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3, within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. We acknowledge all Nations who live, work, and play and help us steward this land and honour and celebrate this territory. We commit to working to live in right relations and to advance Truth and Reconciliation.
