Calgary Stampede and Treaty 7 First Nations: A Historical Perspective

Grades 1/2 and 4

Since the first Calgary Stampede in 1912, the Treaty 7 Nations have played an important role in the annual celebrations. A Grade 1/2 class from Prince of Wales School and a Grade 4 class from Piitoayis School worked together at the Stampede School classroom on an inquiry study into this historical relationship. Traditions have been made new again as the children experienced the Stampede cultural celebrations and new friendships formed as the children researched this historical partnership, learning from First Nation Elders and Stampede Historians.
