Swift Current is an Amskapi Pikuni. A tribal member of the Blackfeet Nation in Northwest
Montana, USA. And a cowboy.
Wild at heart he goes to Rodeos – riding Broncos. 8 seconds thrill ride like once his ancestors chasing buffalo. His pragmatism struck me. In the vastness of the Blackfeet country Swift Currents mindset seems like a rare yet strong blossom - trying to make the most of it. It is an example of a human being in the 21st century. It shows the pride of a young man in a world of contradictions. That how you look on life is a matter of perspective. And that you should feel proud being a Native American.
