Rendezvous Canada 2024

Let’s head north to Treaty 6 Territory – Amiskwacîwâskahikan and Métis Region 4. Let’s try something different, a little off the beaten path. Let’s embrace the new and wonderful and play on the fringes. Let’s take in a show, get a game going, and get together for a festival…or two. Let’s invite the neighbours; let’s invite the world. Everyone’s welcome.

Welcome to Edmonton/ Amiskwacîwâskahikan

Amiskwacîwâskahikan

Indigenous Peoples, including First Nations, Inuit and Métis, have traditionally inhabited northern Turtle Island (known today as Canada) for generations. Through Indigenous tourism, entrepreneurs and communities share their ways of life with visitors from around the world.

In the area surrounding Edmonton, there are many Indigenous tourism businesses to explore, from guides and knowledge keepers to artists and chefs. They represent many different Indigenous nations and have plenty of incredible experiences to share with those who wish to learn more about the richness and diversity of Indigenous cultures found here.
