Whitecap Dakota First Nation
Whitecap is located 20 minutes south of Saskatoon on highway 219. We are located within the Whitecap Dakota First Nation Reservation. We are a small community away from the hustle and bustle of all the big city pace and noise. Whitecap is our newest location, opened in September of 2016. This centre is a partnership with Whitecap Dakota First Nations as well as the Saskatoon Public School Board.
Within the centre we are striving to bring back some of the culture and language of the Dakota ancestry. We have a beautiful outdoor space and are enjoying spending time exploring and learning the environment around us. We have the latest technology with a DIRTT wall. We are a Reggio centre and love to bring nature in when we cant be outside in nature.
The Whitecap Dakota First Nation centre has 56 spaces: 6 weeks to 5 years
