Elder in Residence

Our Blackfoot Elders are on campus one full day each week throughout the fall and spring semesters (September to April). Through traditional teachings and story-telling,  Our Elders offers guidance, cultural support, and encouragement to the campus community. All students, faculty, and staff are welcome and invited to meet with them.

While on campus, the Elders can be found in the Smudge/Elders Room, A-430 (University Hall) next to the Native American Students’ Association lounge. The Elder's schedule is posted and sent out on Eaglesnest at the beginning of each semester. You can view the Elders's schedules for January 2022 here:
