Blackfeet Tribe of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation of Montana
On a smaller scale, the Cuts Wood School in the Blackfeet Nation, Montana (2010) immerses its students in their Blackfeet language both as a goal in itself and a means of transmitting cultural values. According to Kipp (2009) the school has found content that is taught in Blackfeet becomes part of English knowledge as well. In addition to academics and language, values are also emphasized. The Cuts Wood School avoids competition, “a form of violence,” (p. 5) as well as hierarchal concepts, ranking, and punitive designations.
