National Indigenous Peoples Day - The Aunt of Antarctica


The SWG & Wanuskewin Heritage Park have partnered together to bring Danielle Kehler. Join her on her journey as an Indigenous Artist and how it led her into youth empowerment work, activism and becoming an Ambassador for the Antarctic.  Gaining knowledge through her worldly travels, join her while she shares her experience as she explores the crucial importance that Antarctica plays in the regulation of the world's climate. 


Wanuskewin: This year we have once again partnered with Wanuskewin Heritage Park in honouring National Indigenous Peoples Day. This will be a one-day, in-person event with Wanuskewin, who has planned other activities as well, throughout the day for visitors to take part!


Wanuskewin is the past and helps to discover what life was like for peoples that lived on the land. The theme is one of interpretation—exploring and explaining the meaning of Plains cultures to gain a better understanding of ourselves, Saskatchewan’s Indigenous peoples, and our common heritage.


This event is free and open to the public.

Please note there is limited seating; first come, first serve
