Inspiring story with an incredibly beautiful backdrop of Montana! In this video from the Montana Office of Tourism they spoke with Darrell Kipp, a Harvard scholar, U.S. veteran and member of the Blackfeet tribe who was well-known for his work revitalizing Native American languages. He was the director of the Cuts Wood School, a Blackfeet language immersion program for grades K through 8, which is featured in this film.
Sadly Darrell Kipp passed away back in 2013, but his work lives on through the many Native youth he taught. For more information on the Cuts Wood Academy visit http://www.pieganinstitute.org/cutswoodacademy.html
