Wanuskewin in the Community
Wanuskewin Heritage Park has an outstanding team of community supporters and we are proud of the many partnerships that allow us to continue to succeed in being a leader in Indigenous educational programming and culture.
Wanuskewin recognizes the limitations of visiting the park for some people and makes an effort to bring Wanuskewin to YOU! Through television and radio appearances, community events, school outreach programs, and Puppet Tales, our in-school program for students uses music, dance, and storytelling to promote a better understanding of Northern Plains Indigenous cultures and traditions. Wanuskewin works hard to reach out to the community to contribute, collaborate, and connect.
Throughout our history, Wanuskewin has facilitated hundreds of off-site traditional dance performances and outreach programs. We have attended dozens of festivals and events including the Heritage Festival of Saskatoon, Saskatoon Blades First Nation’s Night, Journées du patrimoine, Saskatoon Family Expo, Nutrien WinterShines, Awasis Language Keepers Conference, and many other important conferences and events.
Additionally, Wanuskewin engages in strategic community partnerships in order to educate, promote, and market in collaboration with others. We actively work with other attractions in and around the Saskatoon area to improve all experiences! Wanuskewin regularly provides in-kind sponsorship to these partners and others who wish to showcase First Nations artifacts and materials such as tipis, robes, and powwow regalia at their events.
Join Hand to Land, Mondays at Wanuskewin! Maintain a future UNESCO world heritage site.
Hand to Land volunteers will be a vital role in supporting the maintenance of this future UNESCO world heritage site. Being able to put hand to land means that volunteers are an importance resource that contributes towards the health and conservation of Wanuskewin’s land, valley, as well as in and around the building.
