275 pages, illustrations. "Piecing together information from government records, fur traders' journals, archival documents, scholarly studies, and other published and unpublished sources, John C. Jackson reveals the story of the little-known Piikani Blackfeet tribe. When fur traders entered Piikani territory in southern Alberta and northern Montana in the mid-1700s, they introduced horses, guns, liquor, and disease to the native people. Jackson explores such topics as the Piikani's mastery of the horse; the ongoing defense of Piikani territory against other Indian nations, fur traders, and American expansion; and Piikani tribal ceremony, ritual, and leadership."
