Attractions Grenora is home to the Writing Rock State Historical Site[?]. The Assiniboine[?], Lakota, and Plains Chippewa[?] Indian tribes often returned to the Spirit Rock, or Hoi-waukon, located on a hilly prairie just outside of Grenora. The rock served to mark a spot where Native Americans felt they could foretell the future. The two granite rocks at this site are covered with petryglyphs presumably carved by ancient Plains Indians.
