Tipi at Fish Creek Library

The tipi, on loan from Wolfchild Tipi and Tents, was raised on July 3 with a pipe ceremony performed by Treffrey Deerfoot, a member of the Siksika Nation and a fluent speaker of the Blackfoot language. Traditionally made of animal hide, this tipi is made of canvas with poles harvested from Crowsnest Pass. There are many teachings that accompany a tipi; visit Fish Creek Library to learn more.
