A feature attraction of the stampede is the participation by Southern Alberta's aboriginal
peoples. Daily at Rope Square, members of the 5 tribes living near Calgary demonstrate
several dances in their culture, then invite onlookers to join them in
a "Circle" or "Friendship Dance" (on the day we attended, most children and many adults in the audience
gave it a try). Meanwhile an authentic Indian Village is located at the Stampede Grounds where the
tipis are open for inspection.
