Siksika Nation Chief and Council participate in Langdon Days 2021 Parade
(August 21, 2021 – Siksika Nation) Siksika Nation Chief and Council were invited to participate in the Langdon Days parade on August 21st, 2021 as Parade Marshals. Chief Ouray Crowfoot and Councillors Kent Ayoungman and Susan Solway represented Siksika Nation along side youth ambassador Miss Teen Siksika Annie McMaster for the annual event that takes place in the neighbouring community of Siksika.
“We were invited to lead the Langdon Days parade as the parade marshals, and to provide a blessing this afternoon. The community association recognizes that this is Blackfoot territory and wanted to be respectful. Breaking barriers and building relations are key to the anti-racism message; to be visible in the local communities by proudly expressing who we are starts the conversation away from assumptions and preconceived ideas. We’ll be meeting with the Rockeyview council in a week or two to build on work relations.” Councillor Susan Solway.
