A flag raising can mean different things. For Parkland College student Crystal Whitehawk, currently in the Bachelor of Indigenous Education program, it means a lot to see the Treaty 4 flag flying above Parkland College. The flag, which went up above the college for the first time on National Indigenous People’s Day, is a symbol of the relationship between First Nations and non-First Nations people on Treaty 4 land.
“This is a relationship that has been through some bad times. We are healing from that now and it continues to heal. This shows that the relationship is continuing to heal and we can go to a good place in the future.”
Whitehawk is proud to see the Treaty 4 flag flying across the city, and on a larger level, days like National Indigenous People’s Day celebrating Indigenous culture.
