Okotoks RCMP seek help in identifying cultural artifacts.
Alberta RCMP in Okotoks have released a picture of one of two First Nations artifacts found discarded in the garbage behind a local business. The RCMP believe the war lance and spear may have cultural significance and have put out a call to anyone who can identify ownership or determine their cultural value. One is labeled a war lance, indicating that it may come from a specific collection. Both artifacts are described as ornately decorated with leather and beads. Anyone wishing to claim the artifacts or with additional information is asked to contact the Okotoks RCMP detachment at (403) 938-7046.
