Piikani Nation


The Piikani Nation or simply the Peigan people historically speak the Blackfoot language and are members of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Niitsítapi). 

The tribe occupied territory before the 1870s on both sides of what is now the Canada–United States border. The Blackfoot Confederacy signed several treaties with the US and received the Great Northern Reservation, an initially vast reservation in present-day Montana. The Peigan are now divided between the Blackfeet Nation (Aamsskáápipikani or "Southern Piikani") based on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana, and the Piikani Nation (Aapátohsipikáni or "Northern Piikani") in Alberta. The Piikani Nation has its headquarters in Brocket, Alberta, and controls two parcels of land, Peigan Timber Limit "B" and the Piikani 147 Indian reserve (on which Brocket is located). As of 2014 the band had a registered population of 3,638 members, of whom 2,358 lived on Piikani Nation reserves.
