Three clans of Blackfeet Indians held a vast territory in the northwestern United States and north into Canada. The Northern Blackfeet inhabited what is now Central Alberta, the Piegans, southeastern Montana; while the Blood Indians guarded Montana’s northwestern mountain passes. Like all Blackfeet, the Bloods were restless and agressive, moving frequently and warring constantly on the Cree, Flathead and Crow Indians.
The Blood Indians were superb hunters and warriors. They were also striking in their looks with distinctive clothing and ways of dressing their hair. They had strong character-filled faces as shown in “Blood Man.”
