Additional speakers and performers will include:
- Blackfoot artist Trevor Prairie Chicken
- Researcher Haley Shade, presenting on Blackfoot plants' effect on cancer cells
- Storyteller Carl Brave Rock
- Conrad Little Leaf, presenting on Living off the Land
Students can register through their school's FNMI coordinator or by talking to their principal.
