"In the late 1860s, it may have seemed to the Rocky Mountain Cree that their world was falling apart. The buffalo were diminishing in great numbers, people were starving, gold miners were tramping through their territory, and the Blackfoot had become violent against everyone-Crees, Stoneys, Americans, fur traders and missionaries. They needed a strong, courageous leader, and they found him in Maskepetoon. Leading his people during these difficult times, Maskepetoon followed his own inclinations for peace, wise leadership and friendship. Yet if necessary he could kill with impunity, rule with an iron hand and show no mercy where he believed none should be shown. He transformed his people from woodland trappers to buffalo hunters and from woodsmen to prairie dwellers. He formed allegiances with missionaries and guided settlers through the Rockies. Hugh Dempsey's well-researched account of the legendary chief and his life includes valuable new insights from Cree people themselves, including descendants of Maskepetoon."--pub. desc.

A continuation of the Alberta History Series, Part 3a, 1840 - 1860. The period from 1840 to 1870 was a period of great changes in the human history of Alberta and among the Native people, with the transition from the traditional hunting/ trapping/fur trade lifestyle to a Frontier Settlement culture. 1840-1860 saw both a continuing invasion of foreign aliens into the west, and the growth of the Indian culture into the Classical Plains Indian culture. Both influences were at work among the First Nations of central Alberta. On the one hand there was the growing classical Plains Indian lifestyle and regalia, and on the other hand a growing Frontier Settlement subsistence farming and increasing literacy and an expansion of the Cree culture to fill all the economic and commercial niches offered by a frontier society. 690 pages.

The expansive ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Nation ranged from the North Saskatchewan River in Alberta to the Missouri River in Montana and from the Rocky Mountains east to the Cypress Hills. This buffalo-rich land sustained the Blackfoot for generations until the arrival of whiskey traders, unscrupulous wolfers, smallpox epidemics, and the encroachment of white settlers on traditional hunting grounds. These factors led to widespread poverty and demoralization, forcing the Blackfoot to appeal to the Canadian government for protection. The result of this appeal was Treaty Seven, one of eleven numbered treaties signed across western Canada between 1871 and 1921. Under its terms, the Blackfoot gave up all of southern Alberta in exchange for reserves based upon five people per square mile. In practice, the treaty rendered the Blackfoot powerless and wholly dependent on the government. "The Great Blackfoot Treaties" examines the context and enormous impact of Treaty Seven, as well as other treaties affecting the Blackfoot during this time period.
