Photographer's Note

This is the interpretive center at Wanuskewan Heritage Park, just north of the city of Saskatoon. The park is a tribute to thousands of years of habitation by the plains cultures (Cree, Saulteaux etc.) The specific location was chosen because it was used to harvest buffalo by use of the 'buffalo jump,' (herding buffalo over steep embankments on the edge off the South Saskatchewan River valley.)In addition to the interpretive center, the park also includes several kilometers of walking trails to the buffalo jump areas, and to some ancient stone medicine wheels. Archaeoligical exploration is on going. This building is designd to appear as if it is coming out of the ground, and includes spiers which resemble the shape of the plains teepee. This is a must see for any visitors to this area.
