Blackfoot Language Stories

Hosted By: Richard Sparvier

Hello everyone, my Blackfoot name is Coming Lightning, my english name is Richard Sparvier,

I am your host for the Blackfoot Language Podcast. A spoken word program where you will hear traditional speakers translate the Blackfoot Language. Some of the speakers are people who have passed on, while others are traditional knowledge keepers still with us today.

Stories will range from origin stories to blackfoot legends passed down from generation to generation. Hear the stories of the land from Niitsiitapi (Original People) themselves, the language that has persevered and survived within the Blackfoot Confederacy for ages.

I hope you enjoy,

Iiksuukaapii (Thank you)
