The Story of the Blackfoot PeopleBook - 2001
Nitsitapiisinni: The Story of the Blackfoot People tells the story of the Blackfoot people in their words with collaborating images from the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta. In an innovative partnership with the Glenbow Museum, a team of elders and spiritual leaders from the Blackfoot community agreed to share their information, history, stories and artifacts in an effort to document their lives. This book is intended as the first piece of permanent documentation written by the leaders of the Blackfoot community about their lives both past and present. In this unique collaboration, the Blackfoot speak in their own voice about themselves in ways that have meaning for all people, both native and non-native. It is the story of their struggles and their triumphs, and most importantly their spiritual union with each other and their environment. (2001)
