Keeping Our Culture: Issues of Contact from the Blackfoot Perspective

What lead to the signing of Treaty 7? What was the relationship between the Blackfoot and Europeans? This program begins with a look at traditional Blackfoot society prior to colonization, examines the signing of Treaty 7, what it meant for the Blackfoot peoples and how it affected the lives of the next generations. Work with a Blackfoot educator to discuss the often differing worldviews of the Blackfoot and Europeans, the impact of Blackfoot trade with other Native groups and the impact of trade with European fur traders on the Blackfoot.
