The city of Calgary and its surrounding lands are rich with the history and vibrant culture of its First Nations peoples. Here are six immersive, authentic and educational experiences offered to visitors by the Indigenous communities of Southern Alberta.
Cultural centre: Located along the southwest city limits of Calgary, the Spotted Elk Cultural Centre offers a plethora of immersive activities that focus on the life of the Tsuut’ina Nation before and after European contact on the plains. Employing expert personnel who aim to provide guidance in the rediscovery of the past, the centre boasts various workshops focusing on traditional dance, cuisine, teepee building, regalia, hide tanning and story telling. Candid discussion and questions are greatly encouraged at this location, which hosts business meetings and family dinners as well as individually tailored visits for small to large groups.
