3. Canada: First Nations
Alberta, Canada is home to several of the country’s First Nation groups, including the Blackfoot, Metis, and Inuit, and the communities are very accessible to visitors interested in learning more about their cultures. Visit the fascinating but terrifyingly-named Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, an archaeological center with visitor programs that explain the significance of buffalo jumps in indigenous cultures. Head Smashed-In is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and numerous special events, including drumming performances and pow wows, are held throughout the year.
