Calgary First Nations Stampede History Map. Calgary is the Stampede City. Since 1918, the annual celebration has brought together cowboys, fairgoers and First Nations to mark the high point of the summer.The map describes in detail the First Nations participation in the Stampede and the ways that participation changed the nature of the event. It highlights stories from the Calgary Stampede that are not often heard, stories that focus on the sometimes controversial histories of the Stampede that are an important part of its legacy.
The artist, Adrian Stimson, a member of the Siksika nation, has mapped the events using Indigenous ways of knowing, using pictographs in spiral and linear arrangements painted on a buffalo robe. The map serves as much to inform and remember as it does to decolonize and reclaim. Contributors

LGBTQ History of Calgary Guide & Map. The Calgary Institute for the Humanities is proud to announce the launch of the first map of The Calgary Atlas Project. This project seeks to recover crucial stories about Calgary’s past and present, stories that will illuminate in surprising ways the character of the city. In A Queer Map: A Guide to the LGBTQ+ History of Calgary, Mark Clintberg, working with research by Kevin Allen, has mapped the early histories of Calgary’s Queer communities. The University of Calgary has a long history of engagement with LGBTQ2S+ issues and this map is a fantastic start to a project that layers multiple histories, experiences, and geographies over our dominant urban narrative.
