The Cree Indians also used snares to catch rabbits and other small animals. They represent a large, self-governing tribe made up of about 200,000 people in the United States and Canada. The Woodland Cree are from Alberta, Canada, near the town of Peace River, where the Woodland Cree First Nation has a population of about 1,000 people. The band is governed by a chief and four councilors, while a band manager oversees everyday operations.
The Woodland Cree maintain their own schools and public-works departments. The Cree constitute the largest indigenous population in Alberta.Learn more about US History
