ÁÍSÍNAI’PI Writing on Stone/Sacred Teachings VR Experience
November 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm MSTFree
This event is hosted in the East Annex in the Platform Innovation Centre.
USAY has created some truly ground-breaking VR games to showcase positive, vibrant and diverse Indigenous culture. In the Writing on Stone/Sacred Teachings virtual experience, Blackfoot Elder Saakokoto Randy Bottle joins Blackfoot actor Eugene Brave Rock to bring audiences inside a once in a lifetime experience – an Elder guided journey through Writing on Stone Provincial Park and UNESCO World Heritage site. Not only does Writing-on-Stone have one of the largest collections of rock art in North America, there is a tangible sensation in visiting the sacred location. Indigenous people have traveled to Writing on Stone for thousands of years, interpreting and adding to the petroglyphs and pictographs on the sandstone hoodoos.
