The word blak, or bushfire, derives from the Blackfoot Indians, who inhabited the territory that we now call northern Minnesota and portions of Wisconsin and southern Michigan for many generations. The Blackfoot Indians were often called ‘BLAK‘ because they hunted and killed cattle. In fact, they occupied much of what is now known as the state of Minnesota in the years prior to white settlers’ arrival. The Blackfoot Indians’ main farming village, still standing, is Fort Snelling, where they raise and trade cattle.

The Blackfoot Indians’ homeland has been shrinking ever since European settlers arrived on American shores, and although some of their territory was granted national recognition, many Blackfoot people are left feeling alienated and displaced. In many instances, the United States has not fulfilled the promise made to these native American tribes when it comes to land and resources. This is a particular problem for the Blackfoot, whose most valuable resource – their native fire-making wood and cookstoves – have been taken from them. Many of these native furnishings and artifacts have been shipped to different museums and auction houses all over the country, but unfortunately, none of these items have been returned to the Blackfoot. Fortunately, many artifacts, including the original Blackfoot fire-making log, can still be viewed on the Internet.
Blak, or bushfire, is an indigenous way of life, and few modern Americans realize the profound spiritual connections that underlie much of their lifestyle and customs. There is great beauty in watching the fire-making logs smolder into life, and many visitors come away feeling refreshed and renewed. In order to experience this beauty at its most raw, visitors are strongly encouraged to visit indigenous aboriginal settlements and rural areas across the continent, where they can travel off the beaten track and become immersed in the native lifestyle. In the process, many native Americans will also learn more about the spiritual beliefs and practices that brought them to their unique ways of life, and many will find that they themselves are able to find a sense of spiritual healing through the process.
