Indigenous Languages Manitoba (ILMB.org) has announced that this year’s the 9th Annual Honouring Our Languages Gathering is … Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site of Canada. The gathering is scheduled for October 3rd and 4th. (As a native of Winnipeg, this announcement gives me a special thrill!)
In 1871, Lower Fort Garry was the site of the signing of Treaty One (the first of the numbered treaties). Located less than an hour north of Winnipeg on the banks of the Red River, it is a beautiful site to visit, particularly in early fall. The fort is also a location that combines ILMB’s values of land-based learning, the importance of our histories, and our culture and language.
Registration opens June 1st.
