This course has been taught at Old Sun Community College as Native Studies 207, a U of C course; but the course outline and content has been developed by Siksika scholars as per course outline. This course will reinforce the use of the orthography adopted by the Blackfoot speaking Nations to standardize the writing system and build on grammatical structures and verbal categories introduced in SL 200. The course will continue to emphasize conversational skills and vocabulary development presented through themes and Siksika experiences. Instructor: Dr. Ayoungman

The students will also be introduced to the role of bundle holders for prayers and contributions to community well being. The intent of this course is to rejuvenate an understanding of and respect for the Siksika Way of Life and the values, traditions and social structures embedded in this.
