  Blackfoot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Blackfoot were fiercely independent and very successful warriors whose territory stretched from the North Saskatchewan River along what is now Edmonton, Alberta in Canada, to the Missouri River of Montana, and from the Rocky Mountains and along the Saskatchewan river and down into the state of Montana to the Missouri river.
Since the band was defined by place of residence, rather than by kinship, a person was free to leave one band and join another, which tended to ameliorate leadership disputes.
The Blackfoot maintained this traditional way of life based on hunting bison, until the near extinction of the bison by 1881 forced them to adapt their ways of life in response to the effects of the European settlers and their descendants.

They had a number of hit albums in the 70's and early 80's before their popularity started to wane; they had broken up by 1984, though not before former Uriah Heep keyboardist/songwriter Ken Hensley had joined the group during their last couple of years together.

Society-BLACKFOOT The Blackfoot Indians of the United States and Canada were divided into three main groups: the Northern Blackfoot or Siksika, the Kainah or Blood, and the Piegan.
The three as a whole are also referred to as the Siksika (translated Blackfoot), a term which probably derived from the discoloration of moccasins with ashes (Mooney 1910: 570).

 Blackfoot Sue - The Official Web Site - Biography, Part 2
The name change was actually a fairly straight-forward decision, as the press had often referred to the boys as "Blackfoot" or "the Blackfoots" anyway, and the band had never been entirely comfortable at being labelled with a girl's name, despite their manager's enthusiasm for what he had considered to be a catchy hook.
Without the benefit of a recording contract, the band soldiered on regardless, becoming a five-piece by recruiting vocalist Colin Peel into their ranks (though a gifted vocalist and front-man, these days Peel is probably better known as TV presenter Gabby Roslin's husband!).
Before too long, brimming over with song ideas, the band took to the recording studios, and the end result was the album Talk Radio, released in 1995 in Germany only, and found the band delivering a suite of powerful and classically crafted rock songs, including a remake of the classic track Standing In The Road.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Blackfoot Indians
In their culture the Blackfeet were a typical Plains tribe, living in skin tipis, roving from place to place without permanent habitation, without pottery, basketry, or canoes, having no agriculture except for the planting of a native tobacco, and depending almost entirely upon the buffalo for subsistence.
Upon ceremonial occasions each of the three principal tribes camped in a great circle, as usual among the Plains tribes, the tipis of each band occupying a definite section of the circle, with the "medicine lodge", or ceremonial sacred structure, in the centre of the circle.
Among the most noted of these Oblate missionaries were Father Albert Lacombe (1848-90), author of a manuscript Blackfoot dictionary, as well as of a monumental grammar and dictionary of the Cree, and Father Emile Legal (1881-90), author of several important manuscripts relating to the Blackfoot tribe and language.

People: The Blackfoot Nation really consists of four distinct Blackfoot nations, who share a historical and cultural background but have separate leadership: the Siksika (which means Blackfoot), the Akainawa (also called Kainai or Bloods), the Pikanii (variously spelled Piikani, Pikani, Pikuni, Piegan, or Peigan), and the Blackfeet Nation.
Smallpox epidemics ravaged the Blackfoot population in the mid-1800's (there is evidence that some white settlers may have deliberately helped it along by selling infected blankets).
Nevertheless, in the face of these travails the Blackfoot have not lost their culture, and the Blackfoot Indian language is one of the few indigenous languages in Canada and the United States which has a good chance for survival.
