Kitáwahsinnooni - Protecting our Territory

Developing environmental leaders with Blackfeet cultural knowledge

The goal of this project is to develop protectors of the Nitsitapii environment including the protection of land, animals, eco-systems, jurisdictional issues, or land-use plans. We will do this by recruiting 10 people in our community and partnering with a notable university in order for the cohort to gain graduate-level degrees in environmentalism, leadership, and law. At the same time, the cohort will also receive traditional transfers of knowledge (equivalent to degrees) in the Nitsitapii educational system. With these two world views, the cohort will become the next tribal leaders, advocates, legislators, or working in grassroots movements that protect the environment against infringement of our landscapes.
