Blackfoot Food
Meat
Plants
Special plates
The Blackfoot people ate buffalo, deer, moose and mountain sheep.  They boiled, roasted or dried the buffalo meat. They also ate a fish called salmon and the only fowl they ate was duck.
Blackfoot ate plants like pumpkins, sunflowers, corn, squash and sweet seed.  The women gathered the berries and other wild plants. Food was plentiful and easy to get.  Some of the Blackfoot's special plants are cranberries, blueberries, saskatoon berries, and pinon nut. Wild rice was good with duck or in venison stews.
The Blackfoot had no grains to make cereal or bread. They used pemmican as a staple in their diet in the same way that other tribes used cereal or bread. The women pounded some of the meat into small pieces and mixed it with fat and berries to make this nutritious food.
