Learn the Blackfeet language with this easy and fun language learning app. The Blackfeet Tribe is traditionally known in the native language as the Pikuni, or Beings of abundance. The Creator gifted us generously and the Pikuni were rich in the necessities of life. Respect for life in all forms has traditionally been a foundation of the Blackfeet culture.
As Blackfeet, we not only love our children but we revere our elders, as well. We look to the older generations to pass down their extensive bodies of traditional knowledge. This traditional knowledge was preserved in the minds, spirit, and heart of the Amskapi Pikuni and it is important to remember that was passed down in the language given to them at the beginning of time. Blackfeet Community College embodies this wisdom and incorporates indigenous knowledge in the modern education of our Native scholars.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app for learning the language. I especially like that it gets repeated 3 times. I would like to see the written word along with hearing it. I think I would be able to remember better that way.
It would've been a lot better if the text actually showed. Today, the Blackfeet language is probably not spoken orally completely. Also, I personally thought there was not enough much extensive vocabulary. There weren't simple greetings or anything. However, my sound audio was perfectly fine. I was a little disappointed. Hopefully, this app would come out with a 2.0 version.
I was amazed to see that there was an App for our Tribe; but as far as how the app functioned, the sound did not play at all. I also felt that there should be much more information included and perhaps videos with history and etc. It was a nice effort but please update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
