The Oldman Watershed Council Emblem

Bearing the Niitsitapi name of “The Creator”, the Oldman River in southern Alberta flows from its Rocky Mountain headwaters, through the Plains, to the confluence at the South Saskatchewan River. The Oldman’s face includes three iconic indicator species: Golden Eagle, Plains Bison and Westslope Cutthroat Trout.

The Emblem out in the World...


Old Man made us. I don’t know who made him. I guess he always was. And he was, and is, a God. He was not called Old Man because of great age. The gods can not grow old, they live forever.
— Red Eagle of the Amaskapi Pii'kanis
