This exhibition has been created and curated by a multi-generational and multi-cultural team, including Blackfoot community members, who have participated in a community-driven research project between Opokaa’sin Early Intervention Society and the University of Lethbridge’s Institute for Child & Youth Studies (I-CYS).
The exhibit is the culmination of a 10 year research project called “Raising Spirit” lead by Tanya Pace Crosschild and Dr. Jan Newberry. The exhibition provides a space to learn about local Blackfoot culture, history, and language through art and photography. “Elders of the Future” celebrates the incredible resiliency of local Blackfoot communities through their family and child-rearing practices.
