Indigenous history on Treaty 6 territory in Alberta

To celebrate Indigenous History Month, we’ve created an interactive map with sites of significance that are important to the ever-growing fabric of Alberta’s Treaty 6 territory.

Recognizing Indigenous sites of significance through the years

Celebrating, remembering and honouring Treaty 6 territory in Alberta (Artwork provided by John Cardinal)

In consultation with Indigenous elders and community members, we have created several maps of the Treaty 6 territory to celebrate and learn more about Indigenous culture and history. Each point on the map is of historic significance and contains a description of the place, with additional resources for further learning. The maps include Treaty 6 in relation to Alberta and Saskatchewan, Treaty 6 in Alberta, Edmonton, Edmonton core, the Wabamun/Lac Ste. Anne area and Maskwacîs.
