Amiskwaciy History Series is an Aboriginal lead grassroots initiative aimed at creating awareness regarding the often-untold Indigenous history of the Edmonton area.
The name Amiskwaciy comes from Amiskwaciy Waskahikan or “Beaver Hill House”, a Cree term used to describe the area now known as Edmonton.
Through free monthly educational sessions, the Amiskwaciy History Series hopes to provide accessible and culturally appropriate education to the public on Aboriginal history as lived and told by the people. Videos of Previous Sessions
