Litefoot returned to the Stoney Nakoda Nation July 23rd to perform at the Stoney Nakoda Resort and Casino in Morley, Alberta Canada. The visit was a whirlwinf visit by Litefoot who spoke the day before his concert at the Stoney Nakoda Elders Lodge in Morley and visited with attendee’s of the event both before and after his presentation. He then was given a tour of the Stoney Nakoda women’s shelter which serves as a place of refuge for mothers and their children who have been victims of domestic abuse. In the morning of July 23rd Litefoot was the honored guest and attended a Pipe Ceremony as part of the grand opening of the Teepee Village at the Stoney Nakoda Casino and Resort. The Pipe Ceremony included participation by the three chiefs of the Stoney Nakoda Nation and its pipe carriers. Afterwards, all three Chiefs shared their thoughts with the crowd who had gathered for the opening celebration. Litefoot also spoke to the crowd and upon the conclusion of the event he then took part in a photo session with the chiefs and following that he took pictures with several of the event attendee’s. Later that evening Litefoot rocked the house for an audience who had come from as far away as the Blood Reserve in Siksika, Alberta. Others had ventured in from Calgary to attend the concert. Litefoot performed for appx an hour and then signed autographs and took pictures with fans. Thank you Stoney Nakoda Nation for your warmth and for honoring Litefoot with your tremendous hospitality and sharing your culture and tradition with him and his wife Carmen! Litefoot said, “The Stoney Nakoda Nation are a blessed people who have honored me and my family by including us in their very sacred pipe ceremony today. And for that I am grateful and humbled! I am proud to call the people of the Stoney Nakoda Nation my brothers and sisters.” Litefoot will return to the Stoney Nakoda Nation in September to perform a concert at the Stoney Nakoda Powwow!
