Michael Mountain Horse was a Blackfoot veteran who fought at Vimy Ridge in World War I. Upon coming home, he created a winter count with pictographs to depict his experience, including a squared “U”, a Blackfoot war symbol. One hundred years later, Blackfoot performance artist Adrian Stimson sets out to dig a trench in the shape of that legendary pictograph.
Trevor Solway (Blackfoot) comes from a long line of ranchers and grew up on his grandparent's ranch. At an early age Trevor knew storytelling was his passion and chosen career path. In his seven years of post-secondary education Trevor has studied broadcasting, journalism and filmmaking.
