Saokio Heritage is a community-based organization developed by Indigenous women that aims to educate and advocate for the revitalization of Blackfeet (Amskapi Piikani) traditional knowledge in a modern context.
Our most recent project “Ahwahsiin (The Land/Where we get our Food): Traditional Foods and Contemporary Food Sovereignty on the Blackfeet Reservation” was created with generous funding from the First Nations Development Institute.

The Blackfeet (Amskapi Piikani) also called themselves the Saokio-tapi or the prairie people. Saokio Heritage selected our name to celebrate our “prairie” heritage. (Saokio is pronounced like Tokyo.)
