Miskamowin is a historical documentary project dedicated to learning about the history of Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Beaver Hills House) and the First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities who have occupied Treaty 6 Territory since time immemorial. Our series collaboratively explores the histories, stories and legacies of the places we call home.

Amiskwaciwâskahikan is located on the traditional lands of the Nehyiaw-Pwats ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐤ ᐸᐧᐟ (Nehiyawak/Cree, Stoney Nakoda, Saulteaux , Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Michiff/Métis) and the Siksikaitsitapi (Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Kainai, Piikani Tsuutʼina) Dene and Inuit. We both acknowledge and honor our all relations on Treaty 6 Territory and continue to deeply thank all those who continue to contribute to our collective history.
