LETHBRIDGE – As part of our celebrations for National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21, Alberta Health Services (AHS) is inviting the public to join us for a week of events from June 18 to 24 which celebrate and recognize the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
Outdoor events will include the raising of the Blackfoot Confederacy flag at three AHS sites. The flag will then be flown on special dates throughout the year.
This is an opportunity to learn about and inspire each other, to celebrate Indigenous people and take personal action to support reconciliation – something we should strive to do every day. It is also an important part of AHS’ continuing efforts to enhance an inclusive healthcare system that is welcoming and respectful of all cultures, traditions and beliefs.
AHS has been celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Month with virtual and in-person events taking place across the province since the start of June.
