Transcript of Blackfoot Indian project

by:Angelica Gill Blackfoot Tribe "Blackfoot" is the English translation of the word siksika, which means "black foot." It refers to the dark colored moccasins the people wear Background Information The Blackfeet Indians are original residents of the northern Plains, particularly Montana, Idaho, and Alberta, Canada. Most Blackfoot people still live in this region today. Location Blackfoot Indians were legendary buffalo hunters, and lived a mostly nomadic life following the buffalo herds. Until the buffalo were nearly wiped out by unlimited hunting by white settlers, the Blackfoot Indians thrived on the buffalo and the land, and by trading buffalo hides and other goods with other Indian tribes. human-environment interaction There were far-stretching grassy prairies, affording rich pasturage for the buffalo and the antelope; rough breaks and bad lands for the climbing mountain sheep; wooded buttes, loved by the mule deer; timbered river bottoms, where the white-tailed deer and the elk could browse and hide; narrow swampy valleys for the moose, and snow-patched rock Place The climate varied from arid to humid The characteristic mode of transportation of the Northern Plains tribes including the Blackfoot was by means of the travois Movement This was done by means of dogs as it was later among some other tribes Movement
continued... the Indians exchanged wolf and beaver pelts for guns, ammunition and alcohol with the Canadian-based British merchants The Rocky Mountains afforded deer, elk, moose and mountain sheep, while the plains supported herds of antelope, it must always be kept in mind that the Blackfoot was essentially a plainsman, utilizing the bison more than anything else Region http://www.bigorrin.org/blackfoot_kids.htm
