Before our world premiere performance on September 14, 2014, Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi received a Blackfoot name!

Thank you to Elder Pete Standing Alone of Kainai First Nation, Blood Tribe for performing this beautiful ceremony!

Mayor Nenshi’s Blackfoot name is “Camp Moving Leader” or A’paistootsiipsii, which acknowledges the courage, wisdom and responsibility required to protect all people.

Mayor Nenshi was then presented with a Pendleton Blanket by Lorna Crowshoe (Aboriginal Issue Strategist, City of Calgary) and Candeena Langdon (Calgary Aboriginal Urban Affairs Committee).
