Wanuskewin, a nēhiyawēwin (Cree) means "living in harmony" or "peaceful gathering place". This name was chosen by our original Elders to reflect the spirit of the land and its history. The Opimihaw Valley has been a gathering place for Northern Plains Indigenous peoples since time immemorial.

This September 30th, we welcome you to be present and learn about our history, the lasting Residential School Legacy, and how we move forward in harmony.
