Our Approach

Because the answers aren't always in textbooks.

The Wild Rockies Field Institute acknowledges that our headquarters is located on the aboriginal land of the Séliš (Salish) and QÍispe (Kalispel or Pend d’Oreille). Our courses visit traditional territories of many Indigenous peoples including the Ktunaxa (Kootenai); Secwepemc (Shuswap First Nations); Siksika, Kaianiwa (Blood), Piikani (Northern Peigan), and Amskapi Piikani (Southern Piegan or Blackfeet Nation), which together form the Blackfoot Confederacy; Nakota (Assiniboine) and Aaniiih (Gros Ventre), which together form the Fort Belknap Indian Community; Tsétsėhéstȧhese and Sótaeòo, which together form the Northern Cheyenne Nation; Apsáalooke (Crow Nation); Anishinaabe and Métis (Little Shell Chippewa); Tukudeka (Mountain Sheepeaters of the Shoshone-Bannock); Hopi; Diné (Navajo); A:shiwi (Zuni); Havasu ‘Baaja (Havasupi); Hualapai; Ute; Ndée (Apache); Southern Paiute; and others that we may be ignorant of.
