Alberta Health Services will be hosting a Vaccine Clinic tomorrow in Lethbridge for any First Nation, metis and Inuit people who are born before 2005.
The clinic will begin at nine thirty at the Exhibition Park for anyone who needs their first or second dose.
The Blackfoot Confederacy released a report late last week showing that eight thousand and ninety doses have been administered since the beginning of this year.
A second vaccine clinic will be held on May. 5 in Pincher Creek at the Community hall.
May. 5 is national red dress day in support of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls.
A school in central Alberta started a project to raise awareness in support of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
The project taking place at Gus Wetter School is encouraging students to wear red in honour of Red Dress Day.
The students and teachers created a Red Dress display at the school, which is accompanied by video lessons and poetry to share with Grades 10-12.
There’s less than a week left to apply to the inaugural Audible Indigenous Writers’ Circle.
The six-month mentorship and workshop program will feature up to a maximum of 15 First Nations, Métis or Inuit writers, ages 18 and up.
Program participants will be matched up with established Indigenous writing mentors who will assist them with their creative works.
Writers who will serve as mentors for the Audible Indigenous Writers’ Circle include Kim Wheeler and Tanya Talaga.
Wheeler, a member of Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba, has worked for mainstream and Indigenous media since 1993. She now lives in Winnipeg where she is an independent producer.
After the application deadline, the mentors will help to choose those that will take part in the program.
Emerging Indigenous writers from across Canada, with one exception, are encouraged to apply. Due to provincial contest regulations, Quebec residents are not eligible for the program.
