Discover how bison influenced the history of
Manitoba and the lives of Aboriginals, Métis and Pioneers.
Venture through the aspen forest onto the
open prairie, where you will experience your
first close-up encounter with 30 grunting,
munching bison. Test your skills as you power
a mighty Voyageur canoe around the lake, or
hear the crunching of the snow under historic
footwear, the snowshoe. Explore a Plains
Cree Tipi and marvel at the design and
functionality – cool in summer and warm in
winter, offering a respite from the prairie winds.
Feel the smoothness of a hand crafted black
spoon, fashioned from a bison horn.
Step inside a one-room pioneer sod house
