The Blackfoot tribe is composed of three closely related bands, the Piegan (officially spelled Peigan in Canada), or Piikuni; the Blood, or Kainah (also spelled Kainai, or Akainiwa), and the Siksika, or Blackfoot proper, often referred to as the Northern Blackfoot. The name Blackfoot is said to have come from the color of the moccasins they wore. The tribe populated the Great Plains of Montana, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
