Taza celebrates Aboriginal Awareness Week Calgary (AAWC) and National Indigenous Peoples Day (NIPD)

Formed in the spirit of genuine partnership between Tsuut’ina and Canderel, the vision for Taza combines traditional values and ways of knowing with innovating new paradigms for a rapidly changing world. The values of economic diversity, cultural influence, nature and connection to the land, and community and connectivity create the foundation for this 1200 acre development and align with the aims of AAWC and NIPD, which began in the early 1990s.

Taza will help raise cultural awareness and celebrate the contemporary achievements of Tsuut’ina Nation members during AAWC by sharing the stories of seven Tsuut’ina citizens. Tune into Taza’s Facebook page as each Tsuut’ina Nation member is introduced as prouldy representing Tsuut’ina history and culture while exemplifying Taza’s values.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, AAWC is hosting an online celebration on National Indigenous Day, June 21, 2020
