Indigenous Culture, Heritage & Arts

Want to really know this part of the world? Learn the past and present of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who've lived here thousands of years. Our Indigenous population is descended from the first people to settle the North American plains. • Sweet dreams: At Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park, camp in a tipi village and wake up to sunlight streaming in through the tipi holes. • Heritage: Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was used by Blackfoot hunters for at least 5,700 years.

Chiniki Cultural Centre Exhibits

Morley, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Chiniki Cultural Centre is where culture meets cuisine for experience. The heart of the Chiniki Cultural Centre are the exhibits. Drawing on the images of the First Nations and supported by the collections of other museums, this unique presentation of the Chiniki culture is a must-see. Complimented with artifacts of the Nation members, this tasteful offering addresses the breadth of Chiniki history. Well researched and properly displayed, guests will feel a connection to the richness of the culture. The Chiniki Nation is part of the Stoney Nakoda alliance and under the leadership of Chief John Chiniquay, one of the original signatories of Treaty 7. Located in the immediate foothills of the majestic Rocky Mountains, the centre presents panoramic views while still enjoying proximity to the Trans Canada Highway in Morley. The centre is open year round and admission is modestly priced. Elders and Guides will be glad to answer your questions and point out some of the more interesting elements in the exhibits.
