The Blackfoot Medicine Wheel Project

Description

Medicine wheels are ceremonially significant boulder structures built on the plains by First Nations people. The Archaeological Survey of Alberta commissioned inventories on provincially and federally owned lands to fully document their locations and statuses in an effort to provide stronger protection to these important sites. The Blackfoot Medicine Wheel Project addressed remaining unassessed lands in Alberta for medicine wheels: southern Alberta’s Blackfoot Reserves. Six previously known medicine wheels were revisited, one of which was found to have been destroyed. Five additional medicine wheels, known from oral tradition, could not be verified on the ground.
