Come visit us at Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park and let Blackfoot educators teach your class about the Siksika Way of Life.
Through stories, discussions and activities classes win learn anything from science to botany to history. Ask your program leader about the plants of the valley and how the Siksika people used them in the past and present.
Find out about the Blackfoot tipi and maybe take home your own tipi design. Listen to a local Elder tell stones of the past and learn a few lessons at the same time. Learn more about the historical Treaty 7 from the Siksika people in the valley where it was signed. There are literally hundreds of things to learn about the Siksika Way of Life.
Your program will be suited to the needs of your group.
Here at Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park we feel that every class has different needs and as such teachers are encouraged to call our Education Instructor to discuss their school program. This way each program is tailored to each class's needs.
The first step is to fill out our online form.
Once this form is submitted, our Education Instructor will contact you to discuss your visit and programming. We look forward to sharing the Siksika Way of Life with you and your class!
