dc.description.abstract Blackfoot tribal tradition provides for the voice and action of leaders within the tribe to be honored according to the protocol for the various cultural and religious societies. As leaders become successful and words oftheir qualities filter throughout the tribe, it is a basic understanding that these leaders would become mentors for persons younger than themselves. Leadership qualities esteemed within a tribe were passed from one generation to the next. This project investigates First Nations women in Principal Leadership roles; it specifically asks who were/are influential persons in their lives, what leadership qualities First Nations women in Principal Leadership roles exhibit, and how influential they are as Principal leaders within their school communities. Four First Nations Women in Principal Leadership roles who reside in various Blackfoot tribal communities were interviewed. All women are of Blackfoot ancestry; two being fluent Blackfoot language speakers, two being knowledgeable ofthe Blackfoot language. All women are extremely well-informed in Blackfoot culture and its teachings and imparted their understanding to me The results of this project provide the reader with a history of First Nations women from early North American literature to current ideologies that First Nations women in Principal Leadership roles hold to be true. en
