Celebrating Indigenous Culture and Heritage

Indigenous People’s Day commemorates the heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Metis. Traditionally, Indigenous gatherings included games, trading, dancing, food and storytelling. Celebrate the unique heritage and culture of Indigenous Peoples and experience bannock making, foraging tours, cultural crafts, storytelling, traditional dances and games in partnership with Powwow Times.

The Town of Sylvan Lake respectfully acknowledges that the land on which we gather is Treaty 6 territory, home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. These lands are traditional meeting grounds, gathering places, and travel routes for many Nations, including the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Métis, Saulteaux, and Nakota Sioux. We are grateful for the Traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We acknowledge and thank all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
