From the video “Norma’s Story, I learned about the cultural belief among killing spiders. If any being kills as much as a spider, they are punished for it. For instance, Norma built a slingshot and used a spruce cone to kill a spider. After she acted upon this, her grandfather was very upset with her because the “caribou never come yet”. In the video “THE BLACKFOOT NATION”, I learned about the provincial park called “Writing-On-Stone” located outside of Alberta. I find it very interesting that people are able to go view and experience sacred pictograms left from past generations’.

Considerably, there are times when it does and does not matter if the filmmakers are members. I believe it is important to be a member if someone may use an opportunity to their own advantage. Sadly, there are times when society may not recognize if someone is genuine about their interest or if it is for publicity reasons. For example, there are times when a news broadcaster seems interested, but all they want from an interview or event is a news story… Even though, there are times when filmmakers can provide an educational insight to people who are trying to learn about cultures. In situations like this, I think it is acceptable for non-members to film and share their experience(s) in assurance with such people like the Blackfoot Nation.

Viewing the Indigenous as monolithic groups is harmful because they should not be addressed as the same because they have a very depict lifestyle that is unique to Canada. I can understand why Indigenous People would be offended if called “the same” because they want to and should be recognized for their cultural diversity. Like stated by one of the brothers in the video, even though the Blackfoot Nation dresses in normal t-shirts and jeans, their culture still lives on through “their language, their dances and the writing on the stones”.

Personally, my perspective always changes among cultures when I continue to learn about them. I have always known and respected their spiritual connection with the land and the animals, as well, their use of resources. In the “THE BLACKFOOT NATION” video, I accepted the use of the atlatl more than stampeding the buffalo off the cliff (such as the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump located South of Calgary, Alberta). Once we begin to understand who they are and what they represent, we will (hopefully) gain a positive perspective because we now see their positive attributes among diversity and society.
