 World Footprints will take you inside “The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth”—the Calgary Stampede.  Cowboy up and hitch your horse to a chuck wagon as the Stampede’s Keith Rutherford shares the heritage of one of the signature events, the chuck wagon race.  Then meet the young Canadians who charm their way into the hearts of all during the Stampede evening extravaganzas.  They will share what it takes to be a member of this Broadway style glee club.  Finally, World Footprints will visit the Siksika Nation, east of Calgary on the Blackfoot Reservation.  Tribal elder, Bernard Bear Shirt, will share the history of the Tribe through stories and members of his family will continue the tradition of music and dance.
