Two new historical presentations!

We’ve been hard at work this fall and have come up with two new presentations to offer via webinar:

CITY OF CHAMPIONS: Stories of Petitions, Protests, and Action in Edmonton’s Past. 

Length: 1 hour – 1:30 hours.
Recommended audience: 3-30 persons
Delivered via: Zoom; Google Meets.From fur traders’ demands to suffragists’ demonstrations, Edmonton has been home to champions, advocates, and activists for hundreds of years. Hear stories of those who questioned, pushed, demanded, and strove – sometimes even for causes we might shrink from today. Leave inspired to take action yourself – it’s the most Edmonton thing you can do. 

FAKE NEWS AT FORT EDMONTON: The 1885 Resistance comes to the River City

Length: 1 hour – 1:30 hours.
Recommended audience: 3-30 persons
Delivered via: Zoom; Google Meets.
Fake news, rumours, and ignorance on the edges of the North-West Resistance contributed to panic spreading far from the sites of any actual battles. Edmonton had its own distinct experience, with a rumour of massive Indigenous uprising, supposed secret ambushes, daring horse messengers, and a mischievous cat out for a midnight stroll. The stories of Edmonton’s experience in the Resistance are more relevant than ever.

See these and more on our historical presentations page.
