Our Mission:

To advance the understanding and appreciation of the evolving cultures of the Northern Plains Indigenous peoples.

 

Our Vision

 Wanuskewin will be the living reminder of the peoples’ sacred relationship with the land.

The Site

Wanuskewin Heritage Park sits above the opimihāw Creek and the South Saskatchewan River near Saskatoon – a window into a part of Canada’s history that remains largely undiscovered, and a link to our past unlike any other National Historic Site in Canada. Wanuskewin’s uniqueness is not just the fact that there exists evidence of ancient peoples, but rather the composition of many different aspects of habitation, hunting and gathering, and spirituality – all in one place.

Land

Over six thousand years ago, Wanuskewin echoed with the thundering hooves of bison and the voices of Indigenous peoples from across the Northern Plains; the land still echoes with these stories that Wanuskewin is proud to share.
