Nov. 28, 2018 IGP Annual Community Update Recap
Thank you to everyone who came out to our Annual Community Update in November at the Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary. Read our 2018 Community Update.
Recap: We celebrated our 2018 accomplishments including our new branding and logo (pictured here), business plan launch, site allocation study and official Society standing.
Q: Where will the Indigenous Gathering Place be located?
Site study underway!
We’ve started our site allocation search! Our consultant, Aaron Aubin & Associates are moving forward after direction from our Elders’ gathering last month to research potential sites. We heard many stories of origin and gathering, and are excited to explore which lands would meet the very specific spiritual, traditional and historical needs the Indigenous Gathering Place will rest on.
