Blackfoot Crossing
Opening Summer 2007

Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park has been a meeting place for thousands of years and is steeped in the history of the Blackfoot people. Visit Chief Crowfoot’s last teepee site, Chief Poundmaker’s monument, the site where Treaty 7 was signed in 1877, and the Earthlodge Village site believed to have been built by Mandan
people in the mid 1700’s. Stroll through the hills nearby and see the largest intact riverine ecosystem of its kind in North America. Experience the programs, dancing, Blackfoot story-telling, and the timeless atmosphere with Siksika people as your hosts.

This site is open year round (reduced winter hours) and is located on the Siksika Nation Reserve, 1 hour east of Calgary on Highway #1, then 10 km south on route 842.
