Wanuskewin in the Community
Wanuskewin Heritage Park has an outstanding team of community supporters and we are proud of the many partnerships that allow us to continue to succeed in being a leader in First Nations educational programming and culture.
Wanuskewin recognizes the limitations of visiting the park for some people and makes an effort to bring Wanuskewin to you. Through television and radio appearances, community events, school outreach programs, and Puppet Tales, our in-school program for to students that uses music, dance, and storytelling to promote a better understanding of Northern Plains Indigenous cultures and traditions, Wanuskewin works hard to reach out to the community to contribute, collaborate, and connect
Over the past years, Wanuskewin facilitated hundreds of off-site traditional dance performances and outreach programs. We have attended dozens of festivals and events including Heritage Festival of Saskatoon, Saskatoon Blades First Nation’s Night, Journées du patrimoine, Saskatoon Family Expo, PotashCorp WinterShines, Awasis Language Keepers, and many other conferences and events.
Additionally, Wanuskewin engages in strategic community partnerships in order to educate, promote, and market in collaboration with others. We actively work with other attractions in and around the Saskatoon area to improve all experiences! Wanuskewin regularly provides in-kind sponsorship to these partners and others who wish to showcase First Nations artifacts and materials such as tipis, robes, and powwow regalia at outside events.
During special events and festivals, such as the Kona Festival and National Indigenous Peoples Day, volunteers are engaged to join our diverse team. Contact us if you are interested in volunteering! A Criminal Record Check with vulnerable sectors is required due to our work with children and other vulnerable persons. Criminal Record Checks are available through the City of Saskatoon Police Service or the RCMP in the jurisdiction where you reside.
