Indigenous Land-based Education

Guided walking tours of the Petroforms

1.5 hour | May – October weather dependent

Your guide Diane will meet you at the trailhead to the Petroform site, located around 90 minutes East of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada within the Whiteshell Provincial Park. Diane will provide an overview of the park and share information on Indigenous land uses and histories in the area. As you walk along well-travelled trails, Diane will point out specific Petroforms and share stories and teachings that have been told for thousands of years.

Note: Manidoo-Abi is a sacred site and remains in use to this day. You may not realize that you are standing on or knocking over a Petroform at first glance. Additionally, you may see cloth offerings or gifts along the trail. Visitors must be respectful, and we ask that you do not touch or move any objects or materials from the site.
