Wanuskewin is a sacred site where Northern Plains Indigenous peoples have been gathering for over 6400 years and the home to Canada’s longest-running archaeological dig. There are two historical bison jumps in the park. In 2020 they will be reintroducing bison to the park. They are starting with four young female Bison and will grow their herd over time.
