Coat of Arms

siksika-coat-of-arms

In June 1992, Siksika became the first Nation to register its Symbol as a Coat of Arms with the Heraldic Authority of Canada.

Siksika Nation designed a coat of arms that represented our people.

The buffalo was chosen as the symbolic animal of  Siksika because it provided our ancestors with food, clothing and shelter.

The arrow in seven pieces represents the seven societies in the tribe: The Horn, Crow, Black Soldier, Motoki, Prairie Chicken, Brave Dog, and Ma'tsiyiiks.

The medicine pipe symbolizes peace and crosses.

The tomahawk, the weapon of war which was put to rest forever.

The circles represent the duration of the treaty signed by Chief Crowfoot on September 22, 1877; as long as the sun shines, the grass grows and the water flows.
