Special Red Deer council meeting to adopt Urban Aboriginal Voices agreement

Pipe ceremony, blanket exercise also scheduled June 21

Red Deer city council will hold a special meeting on National Aboriginal Day next Wednesday to enter into a formal protocol agreement with the Red Deer Urban Aboriginal Voices Society.

The City of Red Deer has been working with the society to elevate the city’s protocol with the aboriginal community.

The protocol agreement will establish a governance to governance perspective as to how the City of Red Deer will interface with the urban aboriginal community, Mayor Tara Veer said earlier.

Following the special meeting, the public is invited to join in a pipe ceremony at 10:30 a.m. and blanket exercise at 1 p.m. at Coronation Park (4540 50th Street) to commemorate the signing of the protocol agreement.
