Name of creator
Joe Little Chief was a Blackfoot (Siksika) from Cluny, Alberta. His Blackfoot name was Pe-ta-kis-kis-na-ma, meaning White Eagle. Although he had only a grade six education, he hoped to publish a record of Plains Indian life, and to this end put down on paper tales told by old people, accounts of ancient ceremonies, and stories of people, battles and events.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of articles and legends about the social, religious and warrior life of the Blackfoot and Cree. Includes his winter count for 1830 to 1913. Many of his articles were published in Canadian Cattlemen.
Immediate source of acquisition
Purchased from Joe Little Chief, 1956.
