Three Blackfoot tribes—the North Blackfoot, the Bloods and the Peigan—comprise the Blackfoot Nation in the lands that today include southern Alberta and Montana. For centuries, these tribes shared a common language, culture, and purpose in preserving their territory against attack from neighboring tribes.
The Blackfoot way of life was intimately associated with the great herds of buffalo that lived by the thousands throughout the grassy plains of North America.
This book includes the story of Head-Smashed-In buffalo jump, a UNESCO World Heritage site where the Blackfoot people killed thousands of buffalo by running them off a cliff. The book explains how the Blackfoot used every part of the animal to provide food, clothing and shelter. In the late 1800’s, the white men came and killed the buffalo and pushed the Blackfoot nation onto a reservation, essentially destroying their culture. The whites brought new kinds of sickness and treaties that would change the Blackfoot way of life forever.
