Wanuskewin Heritage Park, Saskatoon, Canada Day

We visited the Wanuskewin First Nations Heritage Park, just north of Saskatoon on Canada Day (July 1). The park is on the site of a traditional buffalo jump. There are steep cliffs over which the buffalo would be sent to their deaths. An excellent park where we spent some considerable time, including very much enjoying a pow wow dance by Jason Thunderbird.

The architecture reflects the ti pi.
