Chief’s Welcome Message


On behalf of Siksika Nation Chief and Council and our membership it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our nation’s new and improved website. This updated website will not only assist in transparency and keep our nation members informed, but will also act as a window for citizens of the world to gain a glimpse of Siksika Nation. Our desire is to not only to use modern modes of communication, like this website, to communicate the triumphs and gains made by our nation, but to also relay information and the issues in regard to strides made to improve the standard of living for our citizens.

With our membership close to 7000 strong and Siksika members now residing in different parts of the world, it is important we also keep them updated on issues that could possibly affect their lives. This website allows us to do this while opening up another avenue for two-way communication with all of our citizens.

To the casual observer, I welcome and encourage you to explore our site and provided links to gain a better understanding of our people, lands, issues, Blackfoot culture, the history of the Lords of the Plains, and the Siksika Nation.

Siksika Nation Chief,
Joseph Weasel Child
