Tipis, Tales and Teachings: An Introduction to Alberta's First Peoples
You are invited to travel back in time to when Alberta's First Peoples co-existed with the natural world. We will learn about how the Blackfoot people met their needs by exploring plants, animals, tipis and camp life. We will see how hides were tanned for clothing, hear stories told by elders and explore authentic First Nations artifacts. Students will create their own tipi to take back to school.
