The Blackfoot Canadian Cultural Society is recognized across Canada for their contribution and commitment to fostering cross-cultural and community awareness relating to aboriginal arts and culture, and generating support and resources for many of the individual artists.
Since founding the society in 1998, Executive Director Mary Ann Crow Healy has worked tirelessly to achieve these goals through programs such as the International Peace Pow Wow, Aboriginal Artists Award Ceremony, Miss Blackfoot Canada Pageant, the Blackfoot Art Gallery and Soaring Heart projects. Both personally and professionally, Ms. Crow Healy continues to inspire us with the strength of her vision and commitment to this task.
