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.
