Saskatoon | Treaty 6 Territory

The stories here | O hêh achimona Otâh

Tales of love, loss, healing and perseverance. Every day, we walk the streets of Saskatoon, pass by landmarks unaware of the stories of people who’ve gone before. We invite you to peel back the pavement for tales of the impact and meaning this land holds. From the banks of the South Saskatchewan River to the inner-city streets, our story keepers share their connection to this place we call home.
