City to develop project to celebrate Indigenous culture – battlefordsNOW

Jul 13, 2023

The City of North Battleford plans to start a type of cultural pavilion to recognize the area’s Indigenous and Métis heritage at the top of King Hill.

The initiative will incorporate the Cree word “Tawȃw,” meaning “Welcome,” in its name that will be entitled “Tawȃw Point.”

“We’re working on developing King Hill,” Mayor David Gillan told battlefordsNOW. “We don’t have details yet. But our council directionally has approved redevelopment on King Hill. The basis of this whole project on King Hill will be a celebration of our culture in the Battlefords.”

The city first mentioned the project during National Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations.

Gillan noted the pavilion will be a showcase “of our great culture in the Battlefords.”
