Blood Tribe Land Management held its annual Christmas Tree Lighting on November 27, 2023. Napi Santa showed up to the delight of the kids waiting for him, they counted down and the lights were lit, there was laughter, singing and treats. Our neighbours the Standoff Colony joined the festivities and brought fresh potatoes to give out to families that attended, it was a fun time for all despite the cold wind. The BTLM Christmas Tree Lighting has become an annual event to start off the Christmas season on the Blood Tribe.
