Hello Calgary Journal subscribers!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful back to school season and enjoying the warm weather! Production is in full-swing here at the Journal, and our reporters are working to create some great new stories to share with you all.
Last Friday, Sept. 30 was the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to honour the Indigenous Peoples of Canada and those who were affected by the residential school system.
Here are some of the recent stories that our journalists have worked on related to the Indigenous community.

- Indigenous woman leads walking tours using traditional oral storytelling Tarra Wright Many Chief has worked with major institutions in Calgary as a background player to help amplify Indigenous voices, but in opening her small business, she has found her purpose sharing Blackfoot culture directly with her clients.
