Indigenous Culture, Heritage & Arts

All around Alberta you’ll find tributes to the strength and stamina of Canada’s First Nations, Métis and Inuit. Feel the past come to life as the stories of the hunt are told through drum and dance at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was actively used by the Plains Indians for at least 5,700 years. See North America’s largest concentration of petroglyphs (carvings) and pictographs (paintings) on the cliffs at Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park. Explore the interactive exhibits at Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park. Sleep in a teepee, learn to make pemmican and bead a moccasin. Investigate early Métis life at Métis Crossing.

Historic Dunvegan

Fairview, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Alberta is steeped in history of Indigenous people, the fur trade and missionaries. Historic Dunvegan, a National Historic Site of Canada nestled in the stunning Peace River valley, brings that history to life. Four original, authentically restored and furnished buildings are still located in the same places they were over 100 years ago, and historic interpreters are waiting to share the stories that helped shape the province we know today.

Frog Lake Historic Site

Frog Lake, Alberta

The Frog Lake Historic Site is situated amid the gently rolling hills of east-central Alberta. It is a quiet, contemplative place now, but more than a century ago it was the scene of one of the most violent and tragic episodes in Alberta’s history. The Frog Lake Historic Site has been designated both a Provincial Historic Resource and a National Historic Site. It features a commemorative cairn, a small cemetery containing the remains of some of those killed at the site and an interpretive trail with panels exploring the historic context of the uprising at Frog Lake.
