North American Indian Days at the Blackfeet Nation


photo by J. Adkins
I am told that I have a "twang" when I try to speak Blackfeet -- and I only know one word, "Oki." It means "hello" as in "Oki Niksokowa" ("Hello my relatives.") Somehow when my friend since gradeschool and Boy Scout days, Alex Gladstone, pronounces the two syllable word it takes about three times longer than in my staccatto urban gringo version!

Although the chances that I will attend North American Indian Days at the Blackfeet Nation this July 6 - 9 are slim I thought that Rolling Rains Readers may want to know about the event and nation residing in and around beautiful Glacier National Park.
