Welcome Dr. Keller and students!

"Elouise Cobell's lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Interior was aggressively pursued by the Blackfeet. effect... Cobell and her allies did not retreating, and their legal campaign proved that Native americans have not vanished; they are quite alive and quite capable of using modern methods to promote tribal prosperity" (Bedford 2 51-52).

In 2006 opened the "first Vegas-style casino" in the Northwest. The Blackfeet Nation own and the Siyeh Corporation operates the Glacier Peaks Casino in Browning, Montana. They have not vanished. How do they continue the process of economic and cultural adaptation?

Your task as investigative historical journalists is to craft a presentation, based on historical evidence in your database research and the material presented in Chapter 2 of Going to The Source, to increase public awareness of the isse of the vanishing Indian and the current status of the survival of the Blackfeet Nation. Through the identification and resolution of group learning issues use evidence to prove your case. Your challenge is to be informative and comprehensive using primary materials, distilling several centuries of issues into topical format, without overloading readers and viewers.
