Interpretative signs have recently been installed at the Nose Hill entrance mural, located at the tunnel under 14th street near the 64th Avenue entrance to the park.
The mural was created by artist Tiffany Wollman and was installed in September, 2021. The artwork features plants and flowers native to the southern prairies, many of which can still be found growing on Nose Hill. The project was guided by two Blackfoot Elders, Cindy Daniels and Rod Scout, who shared their knowledge of traditional use of plants and helped choose some of the plants and flowers featured in the mural.
In the summer of 2022, Tiffany returned to add more plants and flowers to the artwork, and to add labels identifying them by their English and Blackfoot names. The new signs make even more information available. They feature a QR code that, when scanned, brings you to https://northhavenyyc.ca/nosehillmurals/north
Here you can see each plant and flower featured in the mural, and see their names in the Blackfoot, Tsuut’ina, and Îyârhe Nakoda languages, as well as the Northern Michif dialect of the Metis Michif language. These are the languages of the peoples that became members of Treaty Seven. The translations were provided by Elders from each of these nations.
