Yes, "Blackfeet" and "Blackfoot" refer to the same tribe.

Usually. If you are asking about the Siksika, the Algonquin-speaking tribe of what is now Montana and Alberta, then yes.

There is a sub-tribe (band) of the Dakota (Sioux) who were also called the Blackfeet.

Anyway, the tribe in Montana call themselves the Blackfeet, while the same tribe living in Canada is usually referred to as the "Blackfoot".

For references to more detailed sources of information on the name of the tribe(s) (there are actually three tribes in the Blackfeet/Blackfoot confederation), see The Blackfeet: An Annotated Bibliography by Bryan R. Johnson.

No, they are not related in any way.

The Pawnee tribes (Skidi, Kitkehaxki, Tsawi and Pitahawarita) historically lived along Beaver Creek, Nebraska. They spoke a Caddoan language closely related to Arikara and Wichita; they lived in large, semi-permanent villages of earth lodges and only hunted buffalo on the Plains a few times each year; they grew crops of maize, beans and squash; they were generally friendly towards white settlers and some warriors served as scouts in the US Cavalry. They were only marginally Plains people and suffered from raids by the Lakota tribes and others.

The Blackfoot tribes (Piegan, Blood and Blackfoot), together with their close allies the Atsinas and Sarci, lived in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and northern Montana. Their language is Algonquian; they were a pure Plains tribe living only in tipis (moyis in Blackfoot) and constantly hunting buffalo, deer, antelope and elk; they grew no crops of any kind, but gathered wild plant foods in season. They were generally very warlike and carried on an intermittent war against white trappers, mountain men and settlers.

In the 19th century the Blackfoot and the Pawnee tribes dressed and looked completely different; the way they wore their hair, their beadwork designs, the cut of warrior's leggings and moccasins, the way they made their bows and arrows were all very different.

What did the Blackfoot trade with other tribes?

There are four Blackfoot bands: three in Canada and one in the United States. A Blackfoot band is known as a tribein the United States and a First Nation in Canada. Each Blackfoot tribe or First Nation lives on its own reservation or reserve, which means land that belongs to the tribe and is legally under their control. The four Blackfoot bands are politically independent. Each one has its own government, laws, police, and services, just like a small country.In the past, the Blackfeet nation was led by a council of chiefs, one from each clan. The Blackfeet people really valued harmony, so every chief had to agree on a decision before action could be taken (this is called consensus). Today, Blackfeet council members are elected like governors or mayors are... but their government still works by consensus.


Where do the Blackfeet Indians live?

The Blackfoot Indians live in the Northwest corner of Montana now. The Blackfeet held most of the immense territory stretching almost from North Saskatchewan river, Canada, to the southern head-streams of the Missouri River in Montana, and from about longitude 105° to the base of the Rocky mountains. A century earlier, or about 1790, they were found occupying the upper and middle South Saskatchewan, with the Atsina Indians on the lower course of the same stream, both tribes being apparently in slow migration toward the north west.
