Miywasin Story Tour


Tours run this summer on July 21 and October 14, 2023!

Experience Medicine Hat’s Indigenous history through our local guide’s eyes. An integral part of the preservation and expression of culture in indigenous communities woven with social and political commentary. Gather together and share in the celebration of our Indigenous cultures.

Our story begins at the Saamis Tepee. The hand-painted illustrated storyboards represent a variety of influences and history of Indigenous heritage. Listen as they are interpreted through your local guides' experiences. Below the Saamis Tepee, in scenic Seven Persons coulee, lies one of the Northern Plains archaeological sites — the Saamis Archaeological Site. Take time to explore and photograph this area. It boasts one of the foremost important archaeological sites of the Northern Plains. Then, onwards to Métis Community in Saratoga Park. The history of this area stretches back to before Medicine Hat’s earliest days, and Metis peoples lived here until the 2000s. Walk with us as we share the land and tell its stories. Afterwards, join in a hands-on, traditional craft at the Miywasin Friendship Centre.
