[2015] Sareeya Ali: blackfoot tribe report

For clothing, the women wore long deerskin dresses, and the men wore tunics made of buckskin and breechcloths with leggings.

The amazing Blackfoot tribe is from the Great Plains. They live in Montana, Idaho, and Alberta, Canada. Their name comes from the word siksika which means "black foot."

The Blackfoot

Other tribes living in the Great plains are the Sioux, Cheyenne, and Comanche.

The Blackfoot tribe uses tepees made out of buffalo skin for houses, and built them, so that at a moments notice, they could strip the houses down, pack up, and move out very quickly.

the pictures below are of a longbow and arrow, and a buckskin tunic.

The Blackfoot had many artifacts and crafts. Some of the artists made quill embroidery, native bead necklaces, and bracelets. Some of the tools that they used for hunting were longbows, and for fighting, they used clubs, and shields made out of animal hides.

Most Blackfoots today speak, english, but a few still speak their native blackfoot language. Their language has many weird words and is hard to speak.

In the village, the women's main job were to cook and make bowls and pottery, and the men hunted and fished.
