Very modern and new looking information center about the Siksika Nation. The displays were very interesting and touched on various aspects of the life of the Blackfoot people, from buffalo hunting to storytelling, the different dances and costumes during Powwow and much more. I gained...More

The exhibition is great- very informative and well presented about the culture and history of the Blackfoot nations, in an area of great significance for them. We had not checked their website before arriving, so then found that they were closing that day at noon,...More

This place is a gem for those wanting information on Blackfoot culture and history. The building is beautifully designed and works with the landscape. Displays set out and informative. It is very new and it shows. The staff however, are disinterested at best. Walking tours...More
