Indigenous learning opportunities: There are many excellent entry points for learning more about Indigenous history, and the Indigenous Peoples Experience is an exceptional one. From their website: “The Indigenous Peoples Experience at Fort Edmonton Park is an immersive and comprehensive exhibit. The exhibit explores the rich and beautiful cultures of First Nations and Métis Peoples while encouraging visitors to seek out the truths as lived by Indigenous Peoples before and after Canada became a country.” They are open Saturdays and Sundays from noon-4pm now until December 19.
