Indigenous Voices: Alberta, Canada

To truly travel is to throw yourself into experiences that transform you – moments that lead to growth, to changed perspectives, to open hearts. Similar to viewing a powerful piece of art, perhaps a photograph that unlocks the door into another space, travel reminds us that although we come from different places, the commonalities that bring us together are stronger than the differences driving us apart.

Blaire Russell is a member of the Blood Tribe – Kainai First Nation, part of the Blackfoot Confederacy. With his art, created through the lens of a camera, he works to capture the energy of his people’s ancestral home, land that spans from the prairies to the mountains in Alberta, Canada, and across the border into the USA. He tells us how he was taught that the Blood Tribe has inhabited this landscape forever, that their DNA goes deep into the soil.

Here, “everything’s alive, everything has a spirit, everything has a presence,” says Russell. "I want to invite people in to learn about us, and to break barriers."

Meet Indigenous peoples across Canada through one-of-a-kind travel experiences, as they share their knowledge, stories, and history.
