At 65.5 metres tall, the Saamis Teepee stood as a symbol of Canada's aboriginal heritage during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The teepee was relocated to the city of Medicine Hat after the Olympics and has stood at it's current location ever since and is a popular attraction in the city.

The name of the teepee, Saamis, is a Blackfoot word which means eagle tail feather headdress. A headdress worn by a medicine man.

This massive tourist attraction can be found to the south of the Trans-Canada Highway near the Visitor Information Centre on Gehring Road SE.
