Where Can You Find Information About the Blackfoot Indian Tribe History?

Websites that provide historical information about the Blackfoot Indian tribe include the Manataka American Indian Council website and the Legends of America website. Although they originally lived much farther east, the Blackfoot is primarily known as a Great Plains tribe.

Also known as the Blackfeet, the tribe once occupied land ranging from Canada's North Saskatchewan River to the Missouri River in Montana and was made up of four groups: the North Piegan, the South Piegan, the Blood and the Siksika tribes. The websites describe the nomadic hunting lifestyle of the Blackfeet and the impact of European settlers on the tribe. The Manataka website provides a timeline of the tribe's history from the 1700s to 1979.
