Red Crow, warrior chief by Hugh Aylmer Dempsey( Book )

"Red Crow: Warrior Chief is the only full-scale popular biography of the great Blood Chief, telling his story from childhood to his final years, when he fought to equip his people for life in a new and strange world. A fearless and successful warrior as a young man, Red Crow went on to become a wise leader who guided his people through the difficult early years on the reserve, leading them toward better education and self-sufficiency. From 1870 to 1900, Red Crow was head chief of the Blood tribe, part of the Blackfoot Nation. As a warrior, diplomat, and statesman, he dominated the affairs of the largest reserve in Canada for more than two decades, keeping his people at peace, yet never letting them surrender their pride and dignity. He was an important leader and a significant Canadian, yet until this book was first published in 1980, Red Crow had been virtually ignored in the pages of history. Hugh Dempsey's twenty years of research and extensive interviews with members of the Blood tribe - including Frank Red Crow, the chief's adopted son - resulted in this landmark biography of a man whose wisdom, strength, and wise counsel are still felt today on the Blood Reserve in southern Alberta."--pub. desc

The vengeful wife and other Blackfoot stories by Hugh Aylmer Dempsey( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Vengeful Wife and Other Blackfoot Stories by historian Hugh Dempsey presents tales of the Blackfoot tribe on the plains of northern Montana and southern Alberta. The result of fifty years of interviewing tribal elders and sifting through archives, these stories are about warfare, hunting, ceremonies, sexuality, the supernatural, and captivity and reflect Indian viewpoints and beliefs. Previously unpublished stories about great leaders such as Seen From Afar, Bull Head, and White Calf chronicle the Blackfoot reservation years, brushes with the law, and the challenges of adapting to a new way of life." "Preserved in this compilation of oral history and accounts from government officials, travelers, and fur traders are stories dating from the late 1700s to the early 1900s."--BOOK JACKET

The great Blackfoot treaties by Hugh A Dempsey( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The expansive ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Nation ranged from the North Saskatchewan River in Alberta to the Missouri River in Montana and from the Rocky Mountains east to the Cypress Hills. This buffalo-rich land sustained the Blackfoot for generations until the arrival of whiskey traders, unscrupulous wolfers, smallpox epidemics, and the encroachment of white settlers on traditional hunting grounds. These factors led to widespread poverty and demoralization, forcing the Blackfoot to appeal to the Canadian government for protection. The result of this appeal was Treaty Seven, one of eleven numbered treaties signed across western Canada between 1871 and 1921. Under its terms, the Blackfoot gave up all of southern Alberta in exchange for reserves based upon five people per square mile. In practice, the treaty rendered the Blackfoot powerless and wholly dependent on the government. The Great Blackfoot Treaties examines the context and enormous impact of Treaty Seven, as well as other treaties affecting the Blackfoot during this time period."--Publisher
