Blackfoot Ways of Knowing: The Worldview of the Siksikaitsitapi by Betty Bastien
English | June 20, 2004 | ISBN: 1552381099 | 258 Pages | PDF | 13 MB
Blackfoot Ways of Knowing:The Worldview of the Siksikaitsitapi is a journey into the heart and soul of Blackfoot culture. In sharing her personal story of "coming home" to reclaim her identity within that culture, Betty Bastien offers us a gateway into traditional Blackfoot ways of understanding and experiencing the world. As a scholar and researcher, Bastien is also able to place Blackfoot tradition within the context of knowledge building among indigenous peoples generally, and within a historical context of precarious survival amid colonial displacement and cultural genocide.
