Writing-on-Stone / Áísínai'pi is a sacred landscape. It has special spiritual significance to the Blackfoot people who hunted and travelled these Great Plains from the beginning of time. Eveyone who visits this area feel inspired.
Traditional Blackfoot culture and spirituality is based on a long and intimate relationship with the land. Abundant First Nations carvings (petroglyphs) and paintings (pictographs) cover the sheer sandstone cliffs here. The rock art is protected as living legacy to this spiritual connection of a people with a place. The landscape is still part of Blackfoot tradition - where histories, stories and dreams become one.
We also have resources to assist educators.
Visitors can learn about the stories and the landscape here through public tours and interpretive programs.
