Our Vision

Kainaysinni.

 
 

The Creator put on this earth all people with a unique culture and language to occupy a specific territory of land to fulfill his purpose for creation.  Thus, We, the members of Kainaiwa, a member of the Blackfoot Confederacy; speak the Blackfoot language; among other things, hold Ninastako and Mookowanssini as sacred monuments; which among other beliefs, include the Sundance; socially and tribally organized into extended families, clans and tribes; govern ourselves according to customs given to our people by the Creator; presently occupying the Blood Indian Reserve, lying between the Belly and St. Mary's rivers; to maintain ourselves under guidance of our Creator; to initiate a sense of responsibility to our people 

and nation; to continue to seek better means of survival; to provide for an orderly and accepted way of carrying on our culture; to allow freedom of expression and diversity; and in general, to promote the rights, powers and welfare of our Nation; under the powers we hold as sovereign people, do ordain and establish the Tribal System.
