Are there any Blackfoot Indians here? I have a few questions.

I'm on this site because I have a few questions about the Blackfoot tribe. Is anyone here willing to enlighten me?

Normally such an inquiry should be preempted by an introduction. Ideally the introduction would include who you are, what you are about, and why you are here. I can only speak for myself here..... This is a rude question.

Not mad, just giving you a heads up as to how you might be perceived.

So , you from Cicily ?

Blackfoot or Blackfeet ?

Northern or Southern or Eastern or Western.

What kind of "enlightenment" are you looking for ?

There's a guy on here that goes by MileHighSalute....I don't think he's Blackfoot , but he knows all about "enlightenment" ! I'm sure he would help you !

Sorry folks, I'm new here, I'm not aware of all the formalities.

For privacy I'll say that I am The Corleon Gentleman. No relation to Lucianno Leggio or the original Corleonesi family for that matter, but I have quite an affinity for the Corleonesi Family and their history.

I'm not positive of my Blackfoot lineage, to be honest I'm actually sure that the tribe I am talking about is not Native American, rather from Canada, enslaved and taken to the coast of Cuba where they mixed with the Taino Natives. I also believe that I may have misinterpreted my mentor/Grandfather and mistook Blackfoot for Blackskin. In all honesty I came here for some information that may lead me in the right direction folks. I also have a few questions that simply pertain to Indian spirituality.

Apologies for my perceived lack of manners, I did not mean to offend, and Thanks to the gentleman who mentioned the username of the person who might be able to help me!

1. There is a distinct difference !

2. What do you see as a good definition of "Indian Spirituality" ? There are over 560 tribes still recognized by the federal government. And that's not counting the tribes that have lost recognition , tribes that are basically extinct but still have descendants ,all of which have their own belief systems that may be similar to some other tribes beliefs , but may also have subtle differences. Among those are several different bands within The Blackfoot Confederacy. There is no generic "Indian Spirituality "

3. Always trying to help !

@wardancer, honestly I dont know pal, I know I am a direct descendant of a tribe and my grandfather has been mentoring me for years with all this mystery enshrouding his teachings. His answers to my questions always consisted of "you'll know in due time" and other golden quotes such as "Its for you to find out on your own." Unfortunately he just lost his wife (my grandmother) to cancer, causing him to become mentally ill. He has developed a serious case of alzheimers and has become very reclusive. Unfortunately from what hes told me in our old lessons, we are the last two of 6 others he knows exist from our tribe. I'm almost positive that our tribe is not Native American.

When it comes to the spirituality questions, I dont know either. I know I'm experiencing alot of weird things, and I'd like some answers.

I'm sory for my lack of knowledge, I've not been exposed to any other native of my tribe, and as I said my grandfather neglected to enlighten me on my heritage. I'm just lost and I'm trying to find my way.

There are no mysteries between grandfathers and their grandchildren. You must've been a bad seed for him not to tell you everything.

You might be right. I wasn't all that great when I was a kid, but never a bad seed. I mean I wasn't murdering people or anything, but I'm sure there's truth to what you're saying. In reality, I just want to find out more about my heritage to preserve it.

Well, I suppose the best way would be to do what @Josiah always says on the geneology/ancestry threads and start with your most recent relative and work backwards from there.

On a different note, and I don't want to have any kind of spiritual conversation here, I noticed you said your grandfather hald told you that you would find things out in "due time", "on your own", and then you said he neglected to "enlighten you", but now you are experiencing "wierd things"....

If Elders are for real there is always truth in what they tell you.

Good luck on your search.

If your grandfather told you all this, then he must have told your mother or father the same thing...unless they were a badder seed than you.

DI'd you ask them?

For privacy I'll say that I am The Corleon Gentleman. No relation to Lucianno Leggio or the original Corleonesi family for that matter, but I have quite an affinity for the Corleonesi Family and their history.

I'm not positive of my Blackfoot lineage, to be honest I'm actually sure that the tribe I am talking about is not Native American, rather from Canada, enslaved and taken to the coast of Cuba where they mixed with the Taino Natives. I also believe that I may have misinterpreted my mentor/Grandfather and mistook Blackfoot for Blackskin. In all honesty I came here for some information that may lead me in the right direction folks. I also have a few questions that simply pertain to Indian spirituality.

Apologies for my perceived lack of manners, I did not mean to offend, and Thanks to the gentleman who mentioned the username of the person who might be able to help me!
you must meditate

and divide your soul until it becomes infused with the Spirit Of Two

these are questions you may not be prepared for

are you willing to walk down the path to Winkte Hill with the Spirit of Two?

you must ask yourself this. Because once you do there is no turning back

i myself have seen the sweat glistening off the young warriors chests. I have felt my heart pound in longing for the old ways and was excited with arousal of my spirit

this may also happen at powwow.....if i were you i would go to a powwow soon. and ask the elders in a very polite manner. they will talk to you. tell them that you have dreams of standing at the peak of Winkte Hill. And that you are ready o travel hand in hand with the Two-Spirit that has now manifested itself into the core of your very being

make sure you say Winkte Hill, instead of Blueberry Hill.
