Lethbridge College unveiled its traditional Buffalo Winter Count Robe today as part of events surrounding the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The robe will be used as a teaching tool, as a record of major college events, and as a sign of the college’s ongoing work to understand and honour traditional cultures and ways of knowing.
Lethbridge College will host several events next week on campus to help members of the community gain knowledge and confidence in integrating Truth and Reconciliation in their lives.
