Wanaskewin Heritage Park

Louise took us to Wanaskewin Heritage Park to give us an introduction to the history of her people.photo 1This amazing building sits out on the prairie like a huge wigwam structure. A herd of bronze buffalo look like they’re about to stampede through the building. Later we see where they would have been herded over the cliff edge, falling to waiting warriors below.

A powerful place, strong sense of those that were here before. A wind that holds you up when you fall into it, but along the river, sheltered and calm. Traces of past histories.photo 2
