As the Native people of the Subarctic Shield Archaic followed suit, Pre-Dorset peoples occupied the abandon interior land. However, by 800 B.C., all evidence of them disappears. The story of Arctic Small Tool tradition in Manitoba, represented by the Pre-Dorset occupation, is significant in that the sites represent the most southerly occupation of this culture. Giddings (1953) first identified it in northern Manitoba. The Thyazzi Site on the North Knife River was later tested by Nash in 1965 and assigned to an early to mid-Pre-Dorset occupation on the basis of the lithic assemblage (Nash 1969:48).

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.
Some of the most prominent tribes that made up the Sioux nation include Oglala, Brule, Sans Arcs, Hunkpapa, Yankton, Minnwkonjou, Sisseton, Mdewakantonwan and Wahpeton. The Sioux Nation was comprised in 3 major sub-division: LAKOTA OR TETON – with Seven Bands: Oglala – They Scatter Their Own or Dust Scatters Sicangu – or Brule: Burnt Thighs
Their tribes were subdivided into bands, interrelated groups, and these bands had their own governing councils and decision making processes.

Through these moves, many tribe members returned to previous homes.
