Wanuskewin Heritage Park

View on the Meewasin map.

One of Meewasin’s proudest accomplishments is the development of Wanuskewin Heritage Park. Their Visitor Centre is the gateway to the incredibly beautiful unspoiled natural prairie landscape with 360 acres of scenic trails, interpretive sites, archeological digs, fauna, flora and herbs. Learn the stories and lifestyles of the Northern Plains Indigenous peoples who have gathered at this one meeting place for over 6,000 years. Experience Northern Plains culture through hands-on demonstrations and events, traditional cuisine, art galleries, gift shop, indoor and outdoor activities, and overnight Tipi Sleepover programs. For more information please visit their website.

In 1983, in conjunction with its participating parties, Meewasin contributed in purchasing the land to begin development for what is now an award winning National Historic Site that depicts the history of Northern Plains Indigenous Peoples. Wanuskewin is currently undergoing a large revitalization project, and has been named to Canada’s Tentative List for UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Park was opened in 1993 with the help of various groups and all levels of local government. Wanuskewin Heritage Park is now under its own board of directors.
