The Blackfeet Nation
This homepage is supported by the Blackfoot Confederacy. The
introduction gives the Pikuni name and uses the Pikuni word
for hello. Below that are links for many Blackfeet related topics
of both today and yesterday. There is a link to the Blackfoot
Community College page (http://www.bfcc.org/), where many historic
photographs of the people can be found. The main purpose is
providing information about the college, the classes and schedules,
and campus contact details, but it also has a page that gives
some Blackfeet legends, including the creation story.
This site is going to be the future location for the Siksika
Nation Public website. It will provide general information about
their land, their people, their culture and their events. The
site is currently under construction, and they ask that you
check back often.
This site integrates some tribal information as well as features
many tribal commercial opportunities. It is supported by the
Spirit Talk Culture Institute.
