By far, Medicine Hat’s most visible landmark is the Saamis Tepee! Originally constructed for the Calgary 1988 Winter Olympics, the Saamis Tepee is a tribute to Canada’s native heritage. Built entirely of steel with a concrete foundation, the tepee is ringed with 10 large circular story-boards depicting aspects of native culture and history. After being moved to Medicine Hat, erection and assembly of the major structural elements of the Saamis Tepee began October 20th, 1991, and was completed in less than one week. Saamis Tepee is located on the Trans-Canada Highway next to the Tourism Medicine Hat Visitor Centre.
