I received word this weekend that our friend and Blackfeet elder Curly Bear died. I got to meet him years ago during my tribal tourism days in South Dakota with ATTA. We were reacquainted a few years ago when we brought the doc he did with Dennis Neary to Public Television. http://www.visionmaker.org/blackfeet_e.html
