This morning, you’ll visit Wanuskewin Heritage Park, which has been a gathering place for Northern Plains Indigenous peoples for thousands of years. A proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site, Wanuskewin is home to the longest-running archaeology site in Canada with artefacts dating back 6,400 years. You’ll be welcomed to the park with tea and a smudging ceremony, then participate in a demonstration of the practical and cultural importance of tipi raising. Next, you’ll meet the park’s bison herd – an iconic symbol of the prairies that has come from the brink of extinction to saving local grasslands. You’ll learn why bison are seen as the spiritual centre of life on the Northern Plains, with a long history of providing food, shelter and clothing. After exploring Wanuskewin, travel to Black Fox Farm and Distillery, where you’ll learn the art of spirit distillation and taste how the land influences flavour.
