Blackfoot at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Group of three Algonquian-speaking Indian peoples in Alberta and Montana, comprising the Piegan, the Blood, and the Blackfoot proper. They were among the first Algonquians to move westward from timberland to open grassland and, later, among the first to acquire horses and firearms. They were known as the strongest and most aggressive military power on the NW plains, and at the height of their power, in the first half of the 19th cent., held a vast territory extending from N Saskatchewan to SW Montana. Each group was subdivided into hunting bands led by one or more chiefs. These bands wintered separately but came together in summer to celebrate the sun dance. For three decades beginning in 1806, the Blackfoot prevented white men from settling in their territory. They signed their first treaty with the U.S. in 1855, after which they were forced into farming and cattle-raising. Today about 25,000 Blackfoot live in Montana and Alberta.
