Writing-on-Stone/Áísínai'pi is an important place for First Nations, who have respectfully visited the landscape for spiritual purposes for thousands of years. Considered to be the most sacred place within Blackfoot traditional territory, Áísínai'pi is still used by First Nations leaders who visit to observe their history and stories depicted in the rock art, and perform ceremonies to communicate with the spirit world.
