Topic:     Beyond Blackfoot Crossing - The Story of Treaty 7

Speaker:  Dr. Andrew Bear Robe

The signing of Treaty 7 in 1877 was a founding event of modern Southern Alberta.  But, to most people, it’s an obscure, misunderstood historical artifact. 

Making Treaty 7 is the theatrical storytelling of the agreement and its significance and consequences.  Dr. Andrew Bear Robe will introduce and present the video of Making Treaty 7.

Dr. Bear Robe is an elder of the Siksika Nation, the Board Chair of the Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society, and our neighbour at cSpace King Edward. 

He is a former CEO of the Fort McKay First Nation, the former Tribal Manager of the Siksika Nation and a former director of the Province of Alberta’s International, Intergovernmental and Indigenous Relations department. He is also the founding director of the Indigenous Leadership and Governance programs at The Banff Centre for Management.

Dr. Bear Robe holds a Master’s degree in Political Science and Canadian Studies, and a Ph.D. from the Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies program, both from the University of Calgary.
