    Beings of the Land

    On the sandstone canyon walls at Writing-on-Stone/Áísínai’pi there are pictures that have been painted and carved by the Niisitapi (Blackfoot People). These images can tell us a lot about traditional ways of life of including the First Nations relationships with the ksaah-kom-mi-ta-piiks (beings of the land) including animals found on the prairies of Southern Alberta. Journey with a Parks’ interpreter into the Archaeological Preserve for a family friendly walk to view the pictures and to learn more about the importance of the plants, animals, and the lifeways of the people of the plains.
