About the Session:

History in the Hills - Culture Camp carries participants back in time to experience the beauty of Aboriginal history allowing the artistic mind to operate in unison with the ancestors. This production engages participants in First Nations cultures (Blackfoot Confederacy, Nakoda/Assiniboine, and Cree), Inuit culture, and connects with the Métis traditions that evolved from the emerging cultures. In this broad cultural experience participants will have an opportunity to see a powwow demonstration and take part in a traditional round dance.  This learning opportunity is aimed at school and district leaders.  It will increase the participants foundational knowledge and enhance one's understanding of First Nations, Métis and Inuit worldviews, cultural beliefs, languages and values.

The day will be hosted by Red Deer Catholic Schools, Red Deer Public Schools, and Red Deer College along with History in The Hills.
Sessions will be led by Elders and knowledge keepers from Treaty 6, 7, 8 and Metis representatives as well as an Inuit representative.
