The Blackfoot word nitssaakita’paispinnaan can be translated into English as “we are still in control.” It is a term used when a person is still in self-control. It is an important word that Blackfoot people remember because it tells how we are free to make our own decisions; that we are in charge of who we are and how we want to live.

The travelling exhibition Nitssaakita’paispinnaan: We Are Still In Control honours this. Featuring work by Kristy North Peigan, Smith Wright and Lori Scalplock Curated by Troy Patenaude and Kent Ayoungman Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program, TREX Northeast & Central This exhibition was made possible through generous sponsorship from Syncrude Canada Ltd.
