Abstract

Our digital story focuses on the Blackfoot in Canada before, during, and after colonization. Our digital story reveals the impacts that colonization had upon their health and well-being. Colonizers caused disease epidemics, implemented residential schools, severed the connection to their culture and traditional ways, and caused a near extinction of the buffalo which was the Blackfoot's primary resource.
