Old Sun Community College is a Siksika-led, Board Governed educational institution that operates as a comprehensive, non-profit organization on the Siksika Nation reserve. Old Sun Community College formerly operated as an Indian Residential School from 1929-1971.  Today it is a bustling, multi-purposed, culturally based institution that offers accredited post-secondary courses, certificates, diplomas and degrees via partnerships with recognized colleges and universities along with its own designed and developed Siksika Knowledge Courses. The College was named in honour of Chief Old Sun (1819-1897) who served as a medicine man, warrior, and leader of one of the largest of the Blackfoot Confederacy nations. In the Blackfoot culture, Chief Old Sun’s name NA TO SA PI translates to ‘Sun Elder’ or ‘Sun Old Man’ which implies ‘to see’, or ‘to gain insight’.
