What are some examples of the free programs you provide the public on Saturdays?
Hello - sorry for the delay in answering. We have a variety of drop in free programs through the summer. These include short building tours, setting up tipi's throwing spears, mock archaeology dig and more. The schedule for these free programs is not set far in advance and depends on the availability of interpreters. It's best to ask when you arrive at Head-Smashed-In.
We also offer Drum & Dance Demonstrations on Wednesdays (July & August, included with admission), Hikes to the Drive Lanes on the first Saturday of each month Spring-Fall (additional fee), and the Piskun (buffalo hunt) 3 hour immersive programs Monday & Friday (July & August, additional fee).
We hope that helps!
Go to the history.alberta site and look for headsmashed in. There will be a sub-category for education programs.
They seem to have a lot of "encounters" you can plan around.
I think the best would be to either visit their web site (unable to include link in post) or call them directly and ask about the exact date you plan on visiting. We were there during the week and explored the site on our own. We did see a several groups of students there but did not pay much attention to what they were doing or with whom.
