Wanuskewin Heritage Park

4 Penner Rd Saskatoon, SK S7K 3J7, Canada

Wanuskewin Heritage Park is a national historic site. A Northern Plains Indians cultural interpretive centre located 5 kms north of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. It is a beautiful unspoiled natural prairie landscape with 360 acres of scenic trails, interpretive sites, archeological digs, fauna, flora and herbs.

The Wanuskewin area contains some of the most exciting archaeological finds in North America. To date there are 19 pre-contact sites to be found within the valley and two historic sites making this region the longest running active archaeological site in Canada. Some are 5,000 to 6,000 years old and within walking distance of one another.

For more than 6,000 years people have gathered at this place. The nomadic tribes who roamed the Northern Plains came to hunt bison, gather food and herbs, and to find shelter from the winter winds. Some of the sites uncovered date back thousands of years. Wanuskewin is also the site of an arrangement of boulders called a medicine wheel, of which fewer than 100 remain on the northern plains.

Queen Elizabeth II officially declared a National Heritage Site here in 1987, unveiling a commemorative plaque and recognizing the unique nature of this site and its great scientific importance.
