Writing-on-Stone / Áísínai’pi, Alberta

Writing-on-stone/ Áísínai’pi is Canada’s most recent cultural UNESCO World Heritage Site, designated in July of 2019. The park is home to the most significant concentration of protected First Nations petroglyphs (rock carvings) and pictographs (rock paintings) on the Great Plains of North America, some of which date back 2,000 years. The exposed rock of the Milk River valley was formed 85 million years ago, and was eroded after the last age, creating the unusual rock formations seen today.
