WATCH: Indigenous Opening Ceremony at Oilers game
Beautiful! Pulled out all the stops and it was a beautiful sight! Also a beautiful sound as the Edmonton Oilers hosted an Indigenous singer to kick things off. In the event you missed it, here's a few videos from Twitter.
I am so honoured to now be working with the Edmonton Oilers as a designer and Indigenous consultant for the 2021/22 season. One of the fist things I helped facilitate and write is the video land acknowledgment that will now happen before every NHL game. @EdmontonOilers pic.twitter.com/wxi6PtcnVK— Lance Cardinal (@lancecardinal75) October 17, 2021

Chief Willie helped us with our pre-game land acknowledgement that is now played before every game at @RogersPlace. 👏 pic.twitter.com/jb8FdNazuL
