In an era when Buffalo are being hunted to near extinction, smallpox, whiskey traders, and starvation threaten to destroy the Blackfoot people (Siksika). Chief Crowfoot must decide whether to accept the Red Coat’s treaty that would bring food, tools, and education, but also a flood of settlers to their traditional territory.
