Shelter

The Blackfoot tribe normally live in a tepee for a while. They have big but sad times small. If you have a big family you may be able to fit everyone in the tepee but I'm sure if you have a small family you can fit everyone in there. This is what they look like.

How to put up a tepee

To put up a tepee you need to put up the large sticks and make them look like a cone shaped . Then you would tie the sticks together with a string. Then you would put the skin around the out side of the tepee so the rain or animals couldn't get in the tepee.Then the women would go inside and make the beds .Here is a video on how to put up a tepee

Food

The men usually hunted buffalo by running them off cliffs. They eat lots of meat. They also eat deer and antelope. They also ate different kinds of roots and berries. Buffalo was their main source of food. Over 600 blackfoot indians starved to death. Almost all of their food came directly from buffalo.

Clothing

The Blackfoot used buffalo for some clothing. Women decorated clothing with quills and beads. Clothing was also made from deer skin and antelope hide. Women wore long deer skin leggings. They wore moccasins for shoes. Men wore a robe made from buffalo hide most of the time. Men also wore long deer skin leggings like the women. Occasionally the men wore buckskin shirts.
