The Treaty 7 travel study, consisting of HIST 2210 and HIST 2215, will focus on the history of the Aboriginal peoples of what is now southern Alberta. Topics that will be covered include: Plains peoples prior to European contact; the events leading to Treaty 7; representation of Aboriginal peoples in museums and historic sites; and the impact of Treaty 7 on First Nations in what is now Alberta. These events will be examined from a First Nations perspective and students will discover why we are all treaty people. This travel study combines lectures in a traditional classroom setting for a week in late July (dates forthcoming) with just over a week-long experiential field study component during the first two weeks of August. Students will visit a number of sites that relate to the peoples of Treaty 7 such as Blackfoot Crossing, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, and Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park. Wherever possible, portions of the field study component will be led by First Nations peoples. Students who participate will earn credit for two courses/6 credits.

INFORMATION SESSIONS are held in the early Fall.
