First Nations Encampment

Adjacent to the Hudson's Bay Company Fort is the First Nations Encampment. Historically, an encampment represented a gathering place for diverse groups of people including First Nations, Métis, explorers, settlers and traders, as well as others who travelled through Western Canada.

Heritage Park's encampment was re-created within the historical context of neighbouring exhibits, such as the Hudson's Bay Company Fort, Livingston House, Our Lady of Peace Mission and the North West Mounted Police Berry Creek detachment, to allow guests to see how these different cultures would have interacted.

Three canvas tipis are on display and furnished with artifacts that represent the lifestyle of the Plains First Nations during the last half of the 19th century. This encampment represents a special place for First Nations people, their home, their way of life and their economy. First Nations interpreters are on hand to demonstrate traditional activities, tools and other artifacts and share stories from their culture.
