Indigenous Life Festival

What is the Indigenous Life Festival?

The Indigenous Life Festival was first celebrated in 2005 as an open platform where people gather to become informed in an inclusive, interactive and engaging environment. The Festival was reinvigorated in 2017 and is meant to be a full and equal partnership between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples celebrating cultures, history, relationships and perspectives. ILF has become a vehicle for municipalities and cultural venues to share ideas, break down barriers, foster tolerance through learning, create action and encourage involvement. ILF would like to sincerely acknowledge the support of Blue Mountain Village Association and for their commitment to building inclusive and accepting communities.
