Omukoatassim, Sarcee

Sarcee (Tsuu T'ina)
The Tsuu T'ina or Sarcee are an Athapaskan or DENE Nation whose reserve adjoins the southwestern city limits of Calgary. The name "Sarcee" is believed to have originated from a Blackfoot word meaning boldness and hardiness. The Sarcee people call themselves Tsuu T'ina (also Tsúùt'ínà), translated literally as "many people" or "every one (in the Nation)."
