Experience Guide | Tourism Medicine Hat

Experience Medicine Hat’s Indigenous history through our local guide’s eyes. An integral part of the preservation and expression of culture in Indigenous communities woven with social and political commentary. Saamis Tepee Our story begins at the Saamis Tepee. The hand-painted illustrated story boards represent a variety of influences and history of Indigenous heritage. Listen as they are interpreted through your local guides' experiences. Saamis Archaeological Site Below the Saamis Tepee, in scenic Seven Persons coulee, lies one of the Northern Plains archaeological sites — the Saamis Archaeological Site. Take time to explore and photograph this area. It boasts one of the foremost important archaeological sites of the Northern Plains. Métis Community in Saratoga Park The history of this area stretches back to before Medicine Hat’s earliest days, and Métis peoples lived here until the 2000s.
