Long before this place was called Edmonton, Cree people referred to it as Amiskwaciy, or Beaver Hills. Today, Edmonton is located in Treaty 6 territory and is the capital of Alberta. There are over one million culturally diverse people living in Edmonton who enjoy everything that the city has to offer. Edmonton is home to the beloved Oliers Hockey Team, more than 30 festivals per year, and a rich arts and culture scene. The Aboriginal community is vibrant, thriving, and growing here, too. After Winnipeg, Edmonton has the second largest urban Aboriginal population in Canada!
