They depended on the buffalo for many things. In the spring, when the buffalo moved out onto the grasslands, the Blackfoot followed. They lived in large tribal camps, hunting buffalo and engaging in ceremonial rituals. In mid-summer, the people gathered for a major tribal ceremony, the Sun Dance. This gathering was not only social, but allowed them to participate in their rituals and to induct members into their warrior societies. This peice was inspire by a photo taken by Edward Curtis in 1900.
