NATIVE BLACKFEET CULTURE, PART 7
The Blackfeet tribe, like most indigenous cultures, is rich with stories connected to the land. Their spiritual connection to Glacier National Park is evident in how they refer to the mountains in this area as the “Backbone of the World.”
One legend holds that the origin of the Blackfeet name is a reference to the blackened soles of their moccasins from walking across the burned prairies.
