Blackfeet Community College hosted a leather concho belt-making workshop on June 15. Rod First Strike assisted 12 participants in learning how to make a belt for themselves or a child. Every belt was very unique, and the participants were very happy with the class. Iva Croff, Chair of Liberal Studies and Piikani Studies Departments, says that the Piikani Studies Department will be hosting three workshops in early September. Tentatively, Sept. 7, 14, and 21 will be filled with buffalo hide preparation (finishing), breastplate making, and a repeat of the concho belt workshop. Watch for fliers and updated information in mid-August.
