President's Message

Dr. Billie Jo Kipp
Dr. Billie Jo Kipp
BCC President

The Blackfeet Tribe is traditionally known in the native language as the Pikuni, or Beings of abundance. The Creator gifted us generously and the Pikuni were rich in the necessities of life. Respect for life in all forms has traditionally been a foundation of the Blackfeet culture.

As Blackfeet, we not only love our children but we revere our elders, as well. We look to the older generations to pass down their extensive bodies of traditional knowledge. This traditional knowledge was preserved in the minds, spirit, and heart of the Amskapi Pikuni and it is important to remember that was passed down in the language given to them at the beginning of time. Blackfeet Community College embodies this wisdom and incorporates indigenous knowledge in the modern education of our Native scholars.

We here at Blackfeet Community College are pleased that you have made the choice to enroll as a tribal college student or are contemplating becoming one. Please, come visit the BCC campus and explore your educational options. In doing this, I can think of no better way for you to be accountable to our ancestors, for whom education has always been important. Through education we honorably follow in the footsteps of generations upon generations of Amskapi Pikuni.

Education was their vision, just as it is our vision for you today. The Blackfeet linguistic and cultural ways are old and they extend far back to creation. Such ways are good for you today as they provide the basis to progress in education. BCC is a cultural and educational tribal college that promotes learning, as well as a place that honors the tribal identities of the Blackfeet people. BCC is here to develop the potential of your mind and fulfill your dreams of an education. Welcome to a progressive tribal college…Blackfeet Community College.
