Blackfeet Enrollment Department
About the Blackfeet Tribe Enrollment Department
As of November 15, 2011, The Blackfeet Nation consists of 16,924 enrolled tribal members and an estimated 4,500 tribal descendants.
Our traditional homeland ranged from the Yellowstone river in southern Montana, to to the Saskatchewan river in northern Alberta Canada, and from the slopes of the Rocky Mountains to the Sacred Sweet Grass Hills.
In 1895, the boundaries of the Amskapi Pikuni people were drastically reduced to what is presently known today as the Blackfeet Nation, with our southern border located at Birch Creek to our northern border located at the U.S. Canadian line.

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”
