Our Festival home is the beautiful Prince's Island Park in Calgary, Alberta. The traditional name of Calgary is defined by its landscape and most importantly by the rivers of which Calgary is situated. Calgary, traditionally named Moh-kin-stsís, was known to the Niitsitapi people as Elbow. Mohkinstsís was a direct translation of the Elbow River and its route through the Calgary area before and after the signing of Treaty 7. Prince’s Island Park housed many camps traditional to the Blackfoot people and other nations of Treaty 7 as it was a space for ceremony and fishing and/or hunting.
