Mountain Chief (Ninastoko) Blackfoot

(Reference: Who Was Who in Native American History
-Carl Waldman)

 

He was born 1848 in Southern Alberta along the Belly River (now known as the Oldman River.) He was a warrior against the Crows, Gros Ventres and Kootennais. He was the last hereditary chief of the Blackfoot. In 1886 he signed a treaty ceding Blackfoot lands east of the Sweet Grass Hills in Montana to the federal government and in 1895 he ceded the present Glacier National Park.

In the 1920's he became a government public figure in Washington D.C. and the West informant on Plains Indian sign language.

He died in 1942.
