Winter Indigenous Storytelling Self-Guided Audio Experience
In partnership with Chinook Blast we are happy to share this free experience with visitors to St. Patrick's Island in the heart of Calgary's downtown.
Our free self-guided audio tour showcases local Indigenous Storytellers from Treaty Seven. We encourage participants to explore St. Patrick's Island and take in the beauty of the confluence of Bow and Elbow River while enjoying these stories from Mohkinstsis' original people.
To enjoy this Chinook Blast event please visit St. Patrick's Island in downtown Calgary and scan the QR code on signage around the island. The QR code will take you to a webpage with access to pre-recorded audio links.

St. Patrick's Island, Calgary, Alberta
I'd like to acknowledge that we are gathered here on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy, including the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai Nations; we would also like to acknowledge the territory of Treaty Seven, that is also home to the Tsuut'ina Nation and the Stoney Nakoda First Nations of Bearspaw, Chiniki, and Wesley, and the Metis Nation-Region 3, and all the people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
