Blackfoot Legend of the Peace Pipe, 1915

Blackfoot Legend of the Peace Pipe, 1915. Vintage image restored by Kathy Weiser-Alexander. Like other Native American tribes, the Blackfoot have a number or oral tales that they have passed down from one generation to the next. One of the main figures in many of these Blackfoot legends is Napi, which means "Old Man" in Blackfoot. Napi was the son of Nah-too-si, who was the creator of the world, and was sent to teach the Blackfoot how to live a sinless and better life. Napi was not only revered, but often prayed to. In the legends, he is often teaching lessons through tricks or dangerous acts. Communication between the Blackfoot and the supernatural world often occurred through visions or dreams. A number of ceremonies celebrated and encouraged these visions, such as the Sun Dance. Vintage image restored by Kathy Weiser-Alexander.
