Edmonton’s traditional name is Amiskwaciy Waskahikan, which means Beaver Hills House. This place was the traditional meeting place for many Indigenous communities, including the Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Blackfoot and Métis. During the fur trade era, Edmonton became a hub for the Hudson’s Bay Company. Many indigenous groups reside here, and the history of the land is long and vibrant.
