Visions, Hopes, and Dreams at Métis Crossing Wildlife Tour
Visions, Hopes and Dreams at Métis Crossing Wildlife Park offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the beauty of Métis heritage species. The wildlife park is home to rare white bison, wood bison, plains bison, elk, and Percheron horses.
The bison, or “bufloo” in Michif, the language of the Métis, last roamed these hills in 1865. The historical relationship between the Métis people and bison stems from the bison hunt that brought thousands of Métis people together each spring and fall. Through the gathering of these large communities, the Métis Nation took shape with the development of their own laws, democratic, and judicial systems.
- A 1.5 – 2 hour guided tour with transportation
