Description

Introduce your students to the stories of fur traders, Indigenous peoples, and early settlers on Canada’s western frontier. Discover how the beaver pelt brought Indigenous groups and Europeans together and how communities developed and grew on the prairies. Taste fresh bannock made on the open hearth in the Hudson’s Bay Company Fort. Visit the original log home of Sam Livingston and his Métis wife Jane to compare home life then and now.
