About this scrapbook page:
Cultures Challenge. The Siksika Nation is part of the Blackfoot Nation, which is predominantly found in Alberta and Montana. Siksika is about 2 hours from where I live. It is rumored that one of the most famous Blackfoot (Crowfoot) is buried there, but I could not find info on that. Deerfoot was a runner that helped deliver messages between Alberta and Montana (on foot!), and is also Crowfoot's nephew. Siksika translates to black foot or back feet.

**Crowfoot and the Siksika signed a treaty and now live on a protected reservation. The losses these people suffered at the hands of new settlers is a dark red smear on Canada's historical map.
