Diving deeper into the history of the land and the people who lived there gives us a greater understanding of the present. In this episode, filmmaker Chris Hsuing and Cowboy Smithx from the Blackfoot Nation visit Grasslands National Park, Head-Smashed-in Buffalo Jump, petroglyphs and archeological sites in Treaty 7 territory. This area was a "tapestry of nations" before Europeans arrived with a sophisticated set of protocols and ceremonies to maintain peace and structure. It was considered the "Serengeti of North America" where bison roamed freely and were an integral part of life and survival.
