The Town of Strathmore is proud to have the Strathmore Heritage Days a part of our community. Strathmore Heritage Days, one of the largest rodeos in Canada, offers around C$175,000 in prize money when the world’s best cowboys and cowgirls test their skills against some mean rodeo stock. More than 400 contestants participate in events including saddle bronc, bareback, bull riding, calf roping, steer wrestling and ladies barrel racing. There’s also an arts and crafts sale, a parade, beer gardens and a full entertainment programme.

We went to Strathmore, a town close to Calgary for the Strathmore Heritage Days Stampede. The reason we went was because of the Dock Dogs event.

    • Dankie, ek is bly jy hou daarvaan. Dit is, ek is ook gek oor hulle totem pale, waarvan ons ook baie fotos het, maar dit sal ‘n post op sy eie moet wees. Mooi, ek hoop om binnekort van haar te hoor.

  1. Goooooorgeous photos! You are lucky one when seeing Native Americans. I have been in U.S.A. few times, but never seen them alive. I wish that someday I could meet. In South and Central America I have met many times, but it is not the same thing. I have even a goddaughter in Peru.

    Thank You for this extremely interesting post. Happy weekend!

    • I’m so glad you liked them. We are very fortunate. If I see them again, I will try to take close up photographs of their bead-work, which I am sure you would like. I love their totem poles as well, of which we also have many photos, but that will have to wait for another post.
      Our pleasure, thank you for your positive feedback and interest.
      Take care.

  2. Aren’t their costumes beautiful? Were they such strong colours traditionally? You always imagine that colours were more natural in centuries past but in Prague we saw religious statues in gaudy colours which the guide said was original. They loved their statues with false red cheeks, pink robes, strong blues & greens. So perhaps the First nations colours were the same. I Love the papoose. How snug the babies must have been for long journeys. They should do that for babies on international flights.
