See the Teepee Before You Die


Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada

According to legend, during a great battle between the Blackfoot and the Cree, the Cree fought valiantly until their medicine man deserted them, losing his headdress in midstream as he fled to the opposite shore. Thinking this was a bad omen, the Cree put down their weapons and were massacred. This tragic site was called "SAAMIS," a native word meaning "medicine man's hat."
