Indigneous Lethbridge

The City of Lethbridge rests on the ancestral land of the Blackfoot and Indigenous people of Canada. Lethbridge is in Treaty 7 territory as well as a part of the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.

This land has sustained and supported the lives and culture of all Indigenous people since long before we began tracking our history. To learn more about the territory and how it supports the cultural and historical practices of the Blackfoot people of Canada, read Rebecca Many Grey Horses' article on the importance of this territory to Blackfoot culture.
