CALGARY — The Calgary Stampede is changing the name of its annual “Indian Village.”

On Sunday, officials announced the village of more than two dozen teepees will be renamed Elbow River Camp.

The village has been a major part of the Calgary Stampede since its inception in 1912.

Each of the 26 teepee owners are from Treaty 7 Nations of Kainai, Tsuut’ina, Stoney Nakoda, Siksika and Piikani. They live inside their teepees during the Stampede and take turns opening them up to the public for viewing, while showing family artifacts and answering questions about Indigenous culture.
