Piikani Language Revitalization Initiatives

We have an inherent right to our Piikani/Blackfoot language. We have the inherent right to our traditional Piikani/Blackfoot culture. This is guaranteed to all Indigenous peoples through the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Calls to Action along with the United Nation Declaration on the Right of Indigenous Peoples.
