We’re ready.
Are you?
Whether you learn from a kitchen table, dorm room or laboratory, we’re ready for
you. At Lethbridge College, we’re more than bricks and mortar. We’re a community of
thinkers, doers and makers whose job is to make sure you’re equipped for yours.

We know the world looks a lot different than it did even just a year ago. And we know
solving the problems we face together isn’t going to be easy. But we also know what it
takes to dig deep and rise up; it takes perseverance, grit and the desire to do the work.

Through faculty expertise, technology and experiential learning opportunities, we’re here
to help you build the foundation for your future success. Because now, more than ever,
what happens next matters most.

WELCOME TO OHKOTOKI’AAHKOIYIINIIMAAN!
Lethbridge College is located on lands traditionally occupied by Siksikaitsitapi, the
Blackfoot Confederacy. Today, four nations make up Siksikaitsitapi: the Apaitsitapi or
Kainai Nation (Blood Tribe); the Aapatohsipiikani or Piikani Nation; the Siksika Nation in
southern Alberta; and the Ampskaapi’piikani or Blackfeet Tribe in northern Montana.
As both the traditional and current Land Keepers of this area, the Blackfoot Nations
have welcomed people from other Indigenous territories, including all signatory Nations
of Treaty No. 7, members of the Métis Nation of Alberta Region 3, and non-Indigenous
people who have come to call the city of Lethbridge home.

We proudly carry the Blackfoot name Ohkotoki’aahkkoiyiiniimaan (Stone Pipe), gifted by
Kainai Kaahsinnoonik (Grandfather) Peter Weasel Moccasin.
