Blackfoot History Examined at Conference at UofL

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The "Renewing Our Relationship with the Land" conference is running Tuesday and Wednesday at the University of Lethbridge.

 

It's bringing Blackfoot elders and cultural experts together with archeologists and industry representatives. They're meeting to discuss ways of preserving ancient Blackfoot sites in Southern Alberta, and ensure that the history of the culture doesn't fade away.

 

Piikani band member Jerry Potts explained that the groups will share information, pointing out that most of the Blackfoot history is passed down orally, meaning archeologists need to consult with the elders to get the full story of their past.

 

The conference attracted about 150 people from all over the region and into Montana, with speakers coming from as far away as the University of Arizona.
