The Central Alberta Historical Society is one of five chapters of the Historical Society of Alberta, which holds its AGM on the last weekend in May. Traditionally, each AGM incorporates an awards ceremony to honour individuals and organizations who have contributed in exemplary ways to the study and/or preservation of aspects of Alberta history, and is followed by a tour of a place of historical interest.
This year, the AGM and tour will be at Blackfoot Crossing Historic Site, where Treaty 7 was signed. A site of national historic significance, Blackfoot Crossing is a world renowned cultural, educational and entertainment Centre built for the promotion and preservation of the Siksika Nation peoples’, language, culture and traditions. The building itself is intended to be viewed as a metaphor for Blackfoot iconography, and the broader site includes a museum, theatre, tipi theatres, art displays, gift shop, library, restaurant, conference centre and First Nation
exhibits, archives, artifacts and monuments. This promises to be a most interesting day.
Cost for the day includes lunch, admission to the centre, and tour. Details can be found in the brochure, attached:
