About this product
- DescriptionBlackfoot Ways of Kwing: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 kwledge building among indigeus peoples generally, and within a historical context of precarious survival amid colonial displacement and cultural gecide. In mapping her own process of coming to kw, Bastien stresses the recovery of the Blackfoot language and of the Blackfoot tions of reciprocal responsibilities and interdependence. For the Siksikaitsitapi, kwledge is experiential, participatory, and ultimately sacred, rather than objective and inert. Rekindling traditional ways of kwing is essential if First Nations people in Canada are to heal and rebuild their communities and cultures. By sharing what she has learned, Betty Bastien hopes to ensure that the next generation of First Nations people will enjoy a future of hope and peace.
