For the past 106 years, Indian Village has been a place and a name with great historical significance. For many of the participants, it honours the relationship of the Tipi Owners with the Stampede and Guy Weadick from the very beginning. The Tipi Owners of Indian Village and the Calgary Stampede have jointly made the decision to change the name of Indian Village to Elbow River Camp.
Although the languages of the Treaty 7 Nations differ, one thing has always been consistent: this place is referred to as the Elbow. For generations, when tipi owning families came to the Stampede, they would point to their elbow. In Dene, Stoney and Blackfoot, the word for Calgary refers to the bend in the Elbow River - the elbow.
The name change of Indian Village to Elbow River Camp will take place immediately and later this afternoon the Village will have a closing ceremony for Indian Village.
In a little over 24 hours, #Stampede2018
