50 Native State Silver Dollars, Navajo and the Cougar
The "50 Native State Silver Dollars" combine the idea of the successful US State Quarters and the rich tradition of the American Native Indians - in 1 oz. pure silver. America was a nation of tribes long before it was a nation of states and counties.
Each of the 50 issues honours a US State together with the corresponding Indian Nation - in recognition of the important contributions made by Indian tribes. All coins depict an animal that is typic for the state, as well as a magnificent Indian Tribal image.
The Blackfoot Confederacy or Niitsitapi is the collective name of three First Nation band governments in the provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. It is also a Native American tribe in Montana, United States. There are three tribes in Canada, the Siksika ("Blackfeet"), the Kainai or Kainah ("Bloods") and the Northern Piegan ("Poor Robes") or Peigan or Pikuni, and one tribe in the United States: the Southern Piegan ("Poor Robes") or Pikuni in Montana.
The Navajo or Navaho (Navajo: Diné or Naabeehó) of the Southwestern United States are the largest federally recognized tribe in the United States with 300,048 enrolled tribal members as of 2011. The Navajo Nation constitutes an independent governmental body, which manages the Navajo reservation in the Four Corners area of the United States. The Navajo language is spoken throughout the region with most Navajo speaking English as well.
The states with the largest Navajo populations are Arizona (140,263) and New Mexico (108,306). Over three-quarters of the Navajo population reside in these two states.
The cougar (Puma concolor), also commonly known as the mountain lion, puma, panther, or catamount, is a large felid of the subfamily Felinae native to the Americas. Its range, from the Canadian Yukon to the southern Andes of South America, is the greatest of any large wild terrestrial mammal in the Western Hemisphere. An adaptable, generalist species, the cougar is found in most American habitat types. It is the second-heaviest cat in the New World, after the jaguar. Secretive and largely solitary by nature, the cougar is properly considered both nocturnal and crepuscular, although sightings during daylight hours do occur. The cougar is more closely related to smaller felines, including the domestic cat (subfamily Felinae), than to any species of subfamily Pantherinae, of which only the jaguar is native to the Western Hemisphere.
