Tipi Raising

June 1, 2019 1:00PM-4:00PM

This tipi has been lovingly donated to commemorate the past relationships between the Stoney Nakoda Nation and to the devotion our ancestors had to them, that forged such strong bonds between them. This tipi today, also symbolizes the rebuilding of those relationships, and to once again celebrate the Stoney Nakoda’s cultural, spiritual and historical story on this beautiful site. The tipi has been made possible by a donation by Janet Atkinson (nee Kay) and her husband, Bob Atkinson. And our sincere gratitude goes out to them, and to the Stoney Nakoda people who made it happen for us today.

 

Janet Atkinson is a Great, Great, Great Grandaughter of George Millward McDougall. Great, Great Grandaughter of John’s and her Great Grandfather was Morley Samuel, John’s son. Many of you may know Brenda McQueen, the President of the McDougall Stoney Mission Society? She is also related in the same way to George Millward McDougall.
