Diving to locate mistasiny on CBC’s As It Happens

“For hundreds of years, the site – a giant boulder known in Cree as mistasiniy marked a sacred meeting place in southern Saskatchewan. In 1966, government works blew it up. It stood in the path of a man-made lake that was to be created by a dam.

This isn’t just a piece of history. This site still is consecrated ground.”


The location of this sacred stone is among the sacred sites that Tyrone Tootoosis shared here  some time ago. His list and his photos can be found at https://creeliteracy.org/2014/04/28/cree-sacred-sites-tyrone-tootoosis/
