Presented by Aaron Domes – Park Supervisor at Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park, and Randy Bottle (Saa’kokoto) – Blackfoot Elder and Park Interpreter
Writing-on-Stone/Áísínai’pi is a continuous and sacred cultural landscape. The site was inscribed on July 6, 2019 as Canada’s 20th UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Blackfoot name for this sacred cultural landscape is Áísínai’pi (meaning, “it is pictured/it is written”) and refers to the abundance and diversity of rock art at this spectacular site, as well as the geological features and viewscapes that are imbedded with sacred oral traditions.
Many Indigenous traditions continue to be practiced at Writing-on-Stone/Áísínai’pi today, and the ancient tradition of knowledge transmission continues to connect people with the past and informs their future.
Join Aaron Domes and Saa’kokoto (Randy Bottle) to learn about the rich history and values that make Writing-on-Stone / Áísínai’pi special, and receive valuable insider knowledge to help you plan your trip!
