“We’ve witnessed the best of the Blackfeet Community – strong, proud, committed individuals who have transfixed us with their life stories. I’ll always be touched by our time together, and grateful that I experienced this culture.”

– Blackfeet Reservation volunteer

“The volunteers bring their skills, insights, and helping hands to the reservation. But, most important, they bring friendship, curiosity, and compassion. We work together to close the gap of understanding between the Indian and White cultures, and it’s very good.”

– Bob Tail Feathers, Blackfeet Nation member
