The assembly of North American Indians took place at Calgary, Alberta, on September 28th, 1901, and was attended by some two thousand Indians who had trekked from different parts of Canada." Several Chiefs from six tribes signed a welcome statement that was read to the Royal visitors by a young Indian boy.
