Official statement: Leduc Mayor celebrates National Indigenous Peoples Day

Thursday, June 21, 2018

Leduc Mayor Bob Young issued the following statement on National Indigenous Peoples Day:

“Today we honour the diverse cultures of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, and the ongoing contributions they make to Canada’s identity. The history of Indigenous Peoples is deeply woven into our country’s fabric, and Indigenous art, tradition and heritage continue to shape who we are as a nation. June 21 is also a day to celebrate the connection we share with Indigenous Peoples and their history in the Leduc region. In 1899, our city was established on Treaty Six lands. Since then, we have been privileged to join our local Indigenous Peoples in calling this area home. From the past and into the future, may we continue to reflect on the fundamental contributions Indigenous Peoples have made to the culture of all Canadians.”
