Jim Shot Both Sides


Jim Shot Both Sides was the last Hereditary Chief of the Blood Reserve as well as the first elected chief of the Blood Reserve. Except for a 2 year-period, he was chief of the Kainai from the 1950s to 1980, when he retired from politics. The great-grandson of Red Crow, he was taught by his father that it was the duty of a chief to think of the people first, himself last. He was instrumental in helping develop new industries on the Reserve.
