BEK, Inc. Non-Profit Organization 501 (C)(3)

Mission Statement

Blackfeet ECO Knowledge's mission is to revive and preserve Indigenous traditional knowledge systems that focus on the reciprocal relationship between bio-cultural diversity, where people and the environment work together for sustainability. The goal is to ensure cultural perpetuity, to pass on this knowledge to future generations for the protection of the environment. Moreover, the aim is to share this knowledge with the world to develop a better understanding of the importance of balanced and respectful human-environment interactions for the benefit of future generations.

Vision Statement

The goal of all projects undertaken by the organization is to reverse the effects of historical trauma that have impacted not just the people, but also their culture, language, and environment. The four identified pathways include reconnecting people to their way of life, revitalizing the language, promoting culture, and re-establishing bio-cultural diversity to reserve the impact on land, animals, and ecosystems. The projects aim to end generational cycles and restore the Nitsitapii people's sense of identity and pride in their language, culture, and place.

Our Team

The team at Blackfeet ECO Knowledge is comprised of elders, cultural practitioners, and local community members with diverse positions within the Blackfeet Tribe, including business owners, foresters, educators, and environmentalists. The team also includes experts in architecture, history, preservation, and justice. All projects are developed by the team, and they monitor short and long-term goals to ensure successful completion. The team is united in their commitment to reconnect Blackfeet traditional knowledge systems to the people, culture, language, and environment of the Nitsitapii people.
