Reminding the world of Saskatoon's eternal link with the First Nations people of the Northern Plains, the Wanuskewin Heritage Park is a significant historic and cultural site that lies north of the South Saskatchewan River. The site is home to several archaeological finds that date back 6,000 years, evidence of a storied past that harkens back to the traditional life of the indigenous people. Strewn across 240 hectares (600 acres) of the park, a collective history of varied Northern Plains peoples is depicted through time-honored relics and exhibits. These include seasonal hunting sites, a spiritual medicine wheel represented by a set of specifically arranged boulders, pottery remnants, animal bones and egg shells. The visitor center on site acquaints visitors with fragments of First Nations history, while the park's three main trails lead to thought-provoking exhibits.
