KAINAYSINNI

Creator put on this earth all peoples 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 (Chief Mountain) and Mookowanssini (the Belly Buttes) as sacred monuments; which among other beliefs include the Sun dance; socially and tribally organized into extended families, clans or 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 the 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 for freedom of expression and diversity; and in general, to promote the rights powers and welfare of our Nation; under the powers we hold as a sovereign people, do ordain and establish the Tribal System.
