Living Side By Side
The Bears Ears Reserve Self-Directed Interpretive Adventure stands as the Signature Experience for Pine Creek Retreat & Stopping House. This meticulously designed adventure aims to inform, educate, and reconcile the history of the former Bears Ears Reserve, with a particular emphasis on the bands and chiefs who played a significant role in our local heritage and the development of the Victoria National District of Canada and Victoria Settlement. Despite often being overlooked from a nationalistic viewpoint within Canada, this narrative traces back thousands of years before the ethnogenesis of the Métis and several hundred years before the settlement of present-day northeastern Alberta.Bears Ears Interpretive PDF
