Nitsitapiisinni: The Story of the Blackfoot People
The Blackfoot people once dominated a vast region of the northwestern Plains, from the North Saskatchewan River to the Yellowstone River and from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to the Great Sand Hills. They coexisted with all of Creation and developed one of the most complex social and ceremonial systems on the Plains. Nitsitapiisinni: The Story of the Blackfoot People explores these ecological, social, and ceremonial relationships. It also documents the drastic changes to this coexistence brought about by the arrival of Europeans. Written jointly by Blackfoot and Glenbow staff, this book offers a unique view of Blackfoot culture and history from the Blackfoot people who know and understand it.
