Constructing Tipis to Honour and Learn About Indigenous Culture

Inter Pipeline is dedicated to promoting a greater understanding and awareness of the unique histories and cultures of Indigenous peoples in Canada amongst its employees.

Throughout National Indigenous History Month in June, we had the opportunity to learn more about Indigenous culture by having employees from our corporate and field offices participate in a series of cultural learning sessions and tipi setups hosted by our Indigenous Relations teams. Each of our offices set up their own tipi and plans to decorate them before National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30. In constructing each tipi, Inter Pipeline employees were able to meaningfully honour and learn from the rich cultures of Indigenous peoples.

“Our employees across all levels of the business, collaboratively came together to honour and learn about Indigenous cultures. This initiative exemplifies our commitment to fostering meaningful relationships, promoting cultural awareness and demonstrating respect for Indigenous communities. I am incredibly proud of the dedication and passion our teams have shown when participating in these tipi setups,” says Kristen Simpson, SVP & Chief Legal, People & Sustainability Officer.

National Indigenous History Month is celebrated every June in Canada and recognizes the unique cultures, traditions and experiences of First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Guided by our Core Values, Inter Pipeline strives to engage Indigenous communities where we operate, valuing their knowledge, feedback and priorities.
