When you visit Fort Calgary, you stand on the traditional territory of the Blackfoot and the people of Treaty 7, including the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai; the Tsuut’ina; and the Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley Nations of the Stoney-Nakoda. This land is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. This is where the North West Mounted Police arrived in 1875 and built the Fort which became the foundation for the city of Calgary. It is where two worldviews collided, forever changing the people and the place. Phase III of the Make History Museum Expansion and Re-visioning Project is about to begin. It will expand the museum, redesign our exhibits, offer new education programming, and create opportunities to broaden our perspective on the stories that shape who we are.
