The Blackfoot Confederacy flag is flying in front of Lethbridge City Hall along with the flags of Canada and Alberta. A special flag raising ceremony was held Monday morning with representatives of the Blackfoot people, members of City Council and the Indigenous Sharing Network. Blood Tribe Chief Roy Fox says it's an important gesture, adding raising the flag is a symbol of understanding and a realization that the Blackfoot history needs to be preserved. Raising the Blackfoot Confederacy Flag is also part of the city's response to the "94 Calls to Action" of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. -Tina Giesbrecht
