About this Walk

UPDATE: With the weekend weather, this walk is now CANCELLED.

Traipsing up the east side of Nose Hill Park, up an old road carrying a blanket and drum. We are greeted by a Blackfoot Medicine Wheel as we reach the summit. We sit in a circle, joined together by sharing and learning about the sacred medicines, the significance of the medicine wheel, stories and songs, drumming and sharing in a good way. As we prepare to leave the summit, we make tobacco offerings at the Blackfoot Medicine Wheel to end our circle, then descend with blanket and drum to end our journey. This walk does involve climbing/descending, and is not recommended for those with mobility issues. Children and well-behaved dogs are welcome to share in the Indigenous Walk N Drum on the Hill. You are welcome to bring your own drums and blankets.
