Blackfoot Indians to Have
Bible Printed in Own Lingo
SASKATOON, Sask.. July 5.t
Blackfoot Indians' in Canada will
have the first Bible ever written
in their, language, in fact the first
book - of any .kind, when Canpn
H. V. G. Stocken, for many years
missionary : to the - tribe In the
Canadian ' prairies, completes the
work at his home in Victoria, B.C.
Canon Stocken is printing the
Blackfoot Scriptures on a small
press built for the; purpose. He
originated the language charac
ters, which are syllabic and resem
ble i shorthand. He startedwith
72 characters, but hasr reduced
them 'to 40. They are so easy to
master that some members of the
tribe ' learned to write in a few
evenings. These Indians soon be
gan to write letterai to each other
and to Canon Stocken. Silas Wolf
Collar, an old brave, helped the
missionary in his task.
