Module 1.6 – Bison Spirit Land

As I am reading Michael Marker’s (2006) After The Makah Whale Hunt, I am thinking about the community I used to work in in Calgary.  My colleagues and I began to research the land our new school was being built on.  We were close to Nose Creek Park were bison roamed freely and Native groups lived.  We wanted our students to know about the history of the land our new school was being built on and so we started inquiring about it.  I came across this site today which beautifully shares Aboriginal Culture and History in Calgary Parks.

  1. Thanks for Sharing, Shafali. I visited this park last year (my brother got married in Calgary) and was curious to learn more about the history. A very nice document.
