A ceremony was held today to commemorate a heritage site at Prince Albert National Park.


The Paspiwin Cultural Heritage Site has been operating since 2003 and caters to First Nations cultural ceremonies.


It is situated in the park’s old bison paddock.


The park’s Aboriginal Affairs manager, Henry Freemont, says it was through the requests of elders that the park was established.


Freemont says the site may someday offer employment and economic initiatives, as well.
