if your in reference to the Piegan Blackfeet of Montana also known as the Pikanii or Siksika (not to be confused with the Blackfoot Lakota)...then two excellent references spring forth.....

a. George Catlin: My life among the Indians

b. George B Grinnel

Blackfeet Indian Stories
Blackfoot Lodge Tales
The Story of a Prairie People

I'm very interested in all Native American tribes to be honest. But my husband is descended from the Blackfoots so there is a special amount of interest about them and I just wrote a paper on the Hohokam who I found utterly fascinating.

I have several friends of partial Blackfoot ancestry. And I agree - it's hard for me to pick a tribe when I have yet to find a Native people I don't find interesting.

Many times I would like to say Iroquois, their power, organization, and influence always make it interesting to read about them. But it disappoints me how they stayed out of Pontiac's War, they really could have made a difference. Then after that they fall apart over the Revolutionary War.

I would say the Aztec, but I guess they aren't really considered North American natives. They seemed so ahead of their time, and really do destroy that stereotypical image of native Americans.

In the end though, I guess I have to say my favourite natives are the Caribs, because they used blowguns to kill people and they created the word for barbecue, and I love barbecue.
