Cochrane group planning Indigenous Centre holding talking circle this Thursday – Cochrane Eagle

If you are Indigenous and live in Cochrane, on the Stoney Nakoda Nation or the surrounding areas, there is a talking circle this Thursday to get ideas for an Indigenous Innovation Centre.

Planning for an Indigenous Innovation Centre in Cochrane is moving ahead this month with a talking circle and a request to Town council for a space to house the centre.

The input of Indigenous people living in and around Cochrane is being sought by the group spearheading the centre. A talking circle is being held this Thursday (May 5) at the Frank Wills Hall from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

Trent Fox, a project volunteer from the Stoney Nakoda Nation, said they want to hear from as many of the approximately 2,000 Indigenous people living in the Cochrane area and Stoney Nakoda community members as possible.

“We want to expand the Indigenous representation on the volunteer committee we have,” said Fox.
