Blackfoot

A north american tribe

Blackfoot

the Blackfoot Indian tribe was known to be great warriors. Bands were social units of the Blackfoot that usually consists of between 80 and 240 people. The band needed to be large enough to defend against enemies, but still small enough to be flexible. Each band had their own leader. They were defined by their residence rather than by family, so members could freely leave one band to join another. Because of this, bands were constantly changing members. The Blackfoot Indian tribes were nomadic, meaning they moved frequently. They did this in order to follow the herds of buffalo. During the winter, the Blackfoot Indian tribes lived close to a river valley, only leaving if food for the band or animals ran out. When Spring came, the bands would hunt the buffalo that had started to move out into the grasslands.
