NAPI (pronounced "NAW-PEA") is a Blackfoot trixster, a troublemaker and downright foolish being. He teaches us what not to do. Amongst native people (the Blackfoot), NAPI is a household name. His legends, at the dawn of our civilization—when the world was young and the landscape uninterrupted—were used to educate and make sense of the world around us.
For over a decade, The Connection has been dedicated to educating the public, advancing creativity, enabling cultural identity and pride, building determination and promoting mainstream Aboriginal participation. Now, they’re producing a full-length graphic novel for families and adults on the lessons of NAPI.
