• The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 7 territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples including the Blackfoot Nations (Piikani [Peigan], Kainai [Blood], and Siksika [Blackfoot]) and the Tsuu T'ina.  This area was also traditionally used by by the K'tunaxa (Kootenay) people, who now reside in southeastern British Columbia.  
  • Frank Slide Interpretive Centre opened April 28, 1985.
  • Opened by the Honourable Mary LeMessurier (Minister of Culture) and Honourable Fred Bradley (Minister of Environment).
