Treaty 7 : Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park Program
Date: August 23, 2019
Address: Bus pick-up at 333 11th Avenue SW
The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) is excited to invite members of the legal community to a unique field event in partnership with the Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park on the Siksika Nation. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for lawyers to visit the historically significant site of the 1877 signing of Treaty 7 between the Crown of Canada and the Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, Stoney-Nakoda and Tsuut’ina First Nations.
A guided tour with interpreter will take us through the Blackfoot Confederacy’s pre-contact way of life, the events leading to Treaty 7, a walkthrough of the historic sites and cultural relics in the beautiful museum, and a customized presentation on the modern impact of Treaty 7 on First Nations in Alberta. Following the tour, our hosts have graciously invited us to observe the traditional drum and dance.
If you have any further questions, please contact Communications at the CBA.
Round-trip transportation from downtown Calgary to Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park, lunch, refreshments and delicious bannock are included in this full day program.
