Please join the University of Calgary and the Calgary Stampede as they present the second annual Campfire Chats in celebration of National Aboriginal Day.

Wilton Goodstriker, Cultural and Spiritual Leader, Kainai First Nation, will share the mythology of "Blackfoot Skies" and the connection to Indigenous people's sense of place in the universe.
