Wanuskewin has long been partnered with the University of Saskatchewan and Saskatoon Public and Catholic School boards. Every year, students of all ages visit Wanuskewin to participate in interpretive programming that is aligned with provincial curriculum guidelines. Through our affiliation with the University of Saskatchewan, Wanuskewin is a preeminent centre of research and education in Great Plains history and archaeology. Our long-term plans include building on the strengths of our diverse cultural, spiritual, historical, and ecological program offerings.
Wanuskewin is unique in that nearly all contemporary Indigenous groups talk about historic ties to Wanuskewin. These groups include, but are not limited to Blackfoot (Siksika), Saulteaux (Anishinaabe), Cree (Nehiyawak), Sioux (Dakota, Lakota, Nakota), and Dene peoples. At Wanuskewin, we are representative of true diversity in age, gender, race, orientation, ability, culture, religion, etc. and we seek to continue to build on the long history of collaboration that exists here.
Environmental stewardship of the land is an integral part of Northern Plains culture and Canada’s future. For generations, Elders and Knowledge Keepers have taught youth about the importance of keeping the land in its original condition – a way of giving back to the Earth that sustains us. Wanuskewin strives to be a leader in conservation and continuously seeks out partnerships with other leaders in this area.
4. Art & Culture
One of the ways in which we are able to remember our history and enhance quality of life is through storytelling, dance, song, and other artistic media. At Wanuskewin, we believe that stories must be told, dances must be danced, and songs must be sung. In our peak season, traditional song and dance is incorporated into daily interpretive programming. Our gallery features regularly-rotated visual arts exhibits, and our future plans include an enhanced gallery space that will draw Indigenous artists, collectors, and exhibitions on a global scale.
