Indigenous Peoples

There was a time when buffalo roamed the Alberta prairies by the thousands, sustaining and supporting the Plains People who lived here. The vast herds are long gone, but the culture and history of First Nations is still alive today. You’ll feel it when you spend time in their sacred places. Hear their stories through the elders, feel the drumming in your bones, watch the legends enacted in the colourful hoop dancing and learn the wisdom of their ways.
