Overview: The Indigenous Gathering Place Society of Calgary (IGP) is a group of like-minded, passionate people whose purpose is to create a physical space in Calgary for Indigenous Peoples to reconnect with their origins, identities, languages, protocols and traditions. It is also envisioned as a place for others to learn, support and heal on the road to reconciliation. The IGP committee was formed in 2014 when Chief Robert Joseph, through Reconciliation Canada, facilitated a discussion and workshop in Calgary. As a registered nonprofit society, the IGP is a newly formed organization and one of few operating in parallel with Western and Traditional models of practice and values. A seven-member board governs the IGP.
