Blackfeet Indian College hosted a traditional encampment this summer that featured dem­onstrations of Indian crafts and seminars on Blackfeet heritage.

Now in its second year, the event—held in the Rocky Moun­tains—drew about 500 people.

The two-week event was meant to help perpetuate Blackfeet culture, an important goal of the college according to President Gordon Belcourt.

“We’re trying to provide a vehicle to the understanding of our traditions that is accessible to everybody—Indians and non-Indians alike,” he says.
