Town, County of Stettler proclaim National Indigenous History Month

Stettler Friendship Circle was also on hand

The Town and County of Stettler have jointly proclaimed June as National Indigenous History Month and June 21 as National Indigenous Peoples Day. 

"The Town and County of Stettler is home to a rich history of generations of Indigenous Peoples," states the proclamation.

"National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day provide opportunities for businesses, and community members to take time to learn more about Indigenous History, and to celebrate the past and present contributions of all Indigenous Peoples."

The proclamation signing took place in a short ceremony in the County of Stettler council chambers on May 31. 

Reeve Larry Clarke signed the proclamation on behalf of the county, and Mayor Sean Nolls on behalf of the town.

Also in attendance were several members of the Stettler Friendship Circle, a group which has been hosting Indigenous awareness events in the community over recent months.
