PTKS is a department of the Piikani Nation whose mandate is preservation and enhancement of Piikani-Blackfoot heritage and culture. As such we provide educational outreach with a variety of programs and services available in Cross-Cultural Awareness & Sensitivity targeted to classrooms, educators and industry professionals alike.
Our current and innovative programming is developed, delivered and managed by personnel with extensive experience in education having worked in provincial and on-reserve school districts for over a decade.
