The Saulteaux tribe was also referred to as Plains Ojibwa (Curtis xii). Lakota and Dakota tribes were part of the Sioux. The Lakota and Cheyenne tribes were located just south of the current Saskatchewan boarder (Gabriel Dumont Institute 13-14). The following is a brief history of the first nations people of Saskatchewan as defined by treaties 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10. The Native tribes of Saskatchewan were centered on the abundance of bison.
Chapter 16 The Conquest of the Far West Pioneers such as farmers, ranchers, and miners settled west around 1845 and recreated the image of “The Great American Desert” to a legendary “Frontier.” Many Americans were in the west before the Civil War. Despite efforts to drive away established native populations, the Anglo-Americans found themselves among them with their influence in everything they did. Pioneers really relied on federal money and the capitalism of the East. The Far West or “Great West” was more than just one region beyond the Mississippi River; it was filled with many people and different environments. The most widespread Indian group of the West was the Plains Indians.
The Blackfeet Indians were Algonquian-speaking tribe of the Northern Great Plains. The Blackfeet migrated to their homeland from the east, after having separated from other Algonquians. The Blackfoot Confederacy was once so powerful that they controlled a huge expanse of the Northwestern high plains, from the North Saskatchewan River in what is now Alberta all the way to the upper Missouri river in Montana, flanked on the West by the Rocky Mountains. “Members of the Blackfoot Confederacy included three sub-tribes or bands, the Blackfoot proper (or Siksika, meaning “those with black eyed moccasins” in Algonquian), the blood (or Kainah, meaning “blood,” so named because they painted their bodies with red clay), and the Piegan (or Pigunni, meaning “poorly dressed”), plus the Gros Ventre and Sarcee” (Waldman34). All three of the Blackfeet bands plus the Gros Ventre and Sarcee were Algonquian speaking peoples.

In conclusion I believe that the Europeans brought scalping to the natives when they came to colonize. Scalping is a very harsh act that took place up until the 19th century with the last people to do it being the Natives. Although the Europeans introduced scalping, the Natives continued the tradition. Both sides are equally as guilty of this harsh
Three of the animals, though, can only be described in today’s dictionary as an adult male, female and child Bigfoot. None of the animals shown on the painted rock are larger than would would expect; they’re all either life-sized or smaller. The painting of the Hairy man is 8 ½ feet tall (Sandsberry,

By September 2008, the recorded number of dead was 69,227, with 374,643 injured, 17,923 missing and at least 5 million homeless. The earthquake occurred under some of the steepest and most rugged mountains in the world, the Longmen Shan also called the Dragon's Gate Mountains. These mountains are on the eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau and are steeper than the Himalayas. They are formed by the collision between the Indian and Asian tectonic plates that began about 55 million years ago. Two long faults in particular, running the length of the Longmen Shan, had slipped many millimetres during the last few hundred years.
The tail on every snow leopard is more than a yard long, and they do not roar like another other big cat. The usually age for a snow leopard is no older than 15 years old and they can leap horizontally about 45 feet in distance. Habitat Destruction Snow leopards live in the high rugged mountains of Central Asia while their habitat covers 2 million Km2 which is the approximate size of Greenland or Mexico. Their habitat extends through 12 different countries, Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. China happens to contain a total of 60% of the habitats compared to those areas.
On Antarctica the temperature can reach -89.2 oC. It is so cold that throughout the year there is no month with temperature above 0 °C (or 32 °F). It is freezing but it is surprisingly dry. Antarctica is our last continent with untouched wilderness. It has two main seasons, e.g., summer and winter.
