Fort City is built on traditional Treaty 8 and Metis territory. Like Indigenous people across Canada, the Indigenous people in this area have been subjected to mistreatment at the local, provincial, and federal levels of Government, which amounts to attempted cultural genocide. Too often, misguided Christians were part of that maltreatment. The Holy Angels residential school in Fort Chipewyan was only closed in 1974, around the same time Fort City was planted. Despite this mistreatment, the indigenous people in this region have a rich history and culture, which enriches our communities. At Fort City, we have committed to learning the truth and being advocates for reconciliation.
