Blackfeet Nation Chief Earl Old Person presents the Badger Two Medicine Song during a screening of "Our Last Refuge: The Badger-Two Medicine Story" the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., on November 17, 2016.
"It's an honor song and we respect our honor song,," Old Person said in his introduction. "I don't make up the songs. I sing the songs that I heard my elders sing. They sing these songs -- they got them from those people before them."
