Native American Indians
As a complement to our Blackfoot language information, we would like to share our collection of indexed links
about the Blackfoot people and various aspects of their society.
Please note that the Blackfoot and other
American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Ancient history is interesting and
important, but the Blackfoot Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
