The Annual Chiniki Lecture Series grew out of the desire to share the history and cultures of the First Nations peoples of Canada, with both the Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities of Alberta.  This free event began in 2008 and runs in March of each year. For the last three years the Chiniki Lecture has been co-organized by the University of Calgary’s History Students’ Graduate Union and the Stoney Tribal Administration. 

This annual lecture has expanded significantly from a small academic lecture series held at the Chiniki Restaurant in Morley, to a large public event hosted at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, that draws both academic and non-academic attendees from all over southern Alberta. 

The 10th Annual Chiniki Lecture is made possible through partnerships with Banff Centre, the University of Calgary Faculty of Arts, the University of Calgary Office of the Provost, the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation, and the Stoney Tribal Administration.
