Oki, Tansi, Danit’ada, Aba-wath-tech, Paarutit, Hello!

On behalf of the Aboriginal Awareness Week Calgary (AAWC) Circle we want to thank you for your support of our initiative to raise awareness and celebrate the cultural diversity of Canada’s Indigenous peoples. In these past 2 years Covid –19 Pandemic took away our ability to be together as a community, this will be our first opportunity to gather in spirit of community.

In the early 1990’s, Indigenous agencies serving the Indigenous community in Calgary began organizing events and celebrations during the week leading up to National Indigenous Day, held annually on June 21. The summer solstice is a culturally significant day for many Indigenous peoples and is now acknowledged by celebrations held in major cities across Canada.

For the past several years, we have had a strong partnership with the Calgary Stampede Grounds – South Park; this is still a sacred space for us as well as for visitors.

In partnership with Aboriginal People Television Network (APTN) in 2019 attendance throughout the course of the day and evening was approximately 10,000 people. This year 2022, we are taking on a different twist to the event, which we know, as a circle will bring in many more people into the park. This year host a Traditional POW WOW from 1:00 pm-5:00 pm, Handgames, Children Corner, Food Trucks As always, we anticipate Elders, Chiefs, Dignitaries, Indigenous Celebrities, Corporate Calgary
