Post Date: Thursday, June 21, 2018
On Monday, June 18, Mayor Nenshi joined with elders, traditional knowledge keepers, City Council colleagues, and many other VIPs to proclaim Aboriginal Awareness Week and kick off festivities. You can learn more about what's happening this week at www.aawc.ca.
It was also an opportunity to honour Grand Chief Wilton Littlechild for his contributions to human rights in our country. He is truly a leader for all citizens and a reason to be confident that we are on a path to a future of shared prosperity and opportunity for all Canadians (indigenous and non-indigenous alike). If you're just hearing about Wilton for the first time, here's a great biography from when he was inducted into the Alberta Order of Excellence.
