Indians of the Prairie Provinces (An Historical Review).
Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, Ottawa (Ontario).
The document presents an historical review and a description of the 5 tribes--Blackfoot, Assiniboine, Sarcee, Gros Ventre, Kootenay--which inhabited what now comprises the prairie provinces of Canada. The arrival of the Europeans, traders and explorers, missionaries, and other settlers brought about many changes in the Indian culture, and these cultural changes are described. The treaties, the treaty terms, and their impacts on the Indian culture are discussed, as is the period of progress from 1885 to 1900. Reviews of education, economic development, and population conclude this document. (LS)
