The Office of the Treaty Commissioner welcomes the news from Wanuskewin Heritage Park of the birth of a baby bison.

According to a release from the park, the female bison is the firstborn of the herd that Wanuskewin welcomed from the United States in December 2019, with links to the famous Yellowstone herd.

In December 2019, Wanuskewin welcomed eleven genetically-pure Plains bison from herds originating in the United States and Grasslands National Park. More young bison are expected to arrive this spring.

The park says, Wanuskewin’s Elders have been delighted with the arrival of this new life; and have reminded us that the bison need privacy during this time. We kindly remind the public that Wanuskewin is closed due to COVID-19 and everyone will need to wait until Wanuskewin opens during phase four of the Re-Open Saskatchewan.
