In Blackfoot, “oki” means “hello”.
We’re proud to have worked with the City of Lethbridge and the local indigenous community to produce this important land acknowledgement video.
“The City of Lethbridge acknowledges that we are gathered on the lands of the Blackfoot people of the Canadian Plains and pays respect to the Blackfoot people past, present and future while recognizing and respecting their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship to the land.”
Oki Lethbridge! 👋 A beautiful video you’ve created! This week at @CanadaExpo2020, we welcomed 33 indigenous performers from across Canada to showcase our talent, acknowledge our history and embrace our future. Thank you for your inspiration. https://t.co/Uz6a1touiz— Marcy Grossman🇨🇦 (@MarcyGrossman) November 19, 2021
