In 1830 the Blackfoot signed a treaty to trade with the Americans. The two cultures lived and traded side by side till gold was discovered in 1862. This brought drastic change in attitude and little respect for the land and the lives of the Blackfoot people. With the demise of the buffalo the Blackfoot people were forced onto reservations. By 1885 the military accomplished their mission and the Blackfoot trade was over.
This book will take you through the development of the fur and robe trade with the Blackfoot and the Upper Missouri River trading posts.
