Stroll the picturesque banks of the Qu’Appelle River and walk around the stone monuments marking the spot where Fort Espérance, the North West Company’s oldest pemmican depot, once stood. Imagine the bustling scene of the company men and Indigenous tradespeople preparing the pemmican and buffalo hides, before heading two days march away to the junction of the Assiniboine River, the gateway to the prized Athabasca region.
