The Blackfeet occupy four different reservations in North America: the Piegan Agency, the Blood Agency, and the Blackfoot Reservation, all in Montana; and the Canadian Blackfeet Agency in Alberta. (The Piegan, the Blackfeet, and the Bloods all speak an Algonquian dialect and, in the aggregate, are all confederated as "Blackfeet.") Browning, Montana, is the seat of the Blackfeet tribal government.
This groundbreaking book is a transcription of microfilm copies of a census of the Piegan Indians of Montana, taken by George B. McLaughlin and Thomas P. Fuller, U.S. Indian Agents, in 1897 and 1898 respectively. Tribal members are arranged by household, and for each person the information provided consists of English name, sex, relationship to head of household, and age. More than 2,000 persons are identified in all. The comprehensive name index makes it easy to find any person listed in the census, while Mr. Bowen's brief Introduction puts everything into context.
'George III is alleged to have married secretly, on 17th April, 1759, a Quakeress called Hannah Lightfoot. If George III did make such a marriage...then his subsequent marriage to Queen Charlotte was bigamous, and every monarch of Britain since has been a usurper, the rightful heirs of George III being his children by Hannah Lightfoot...'

In essence, the book has a dual focus. First it attempts to locate and describe the land of the early settlers. This is done by means of a superb series of plat maps, drawn to scale from original surveys and based both on certificates of survey and patents. These show, in precise configurations, the exact locations of the various grants and lots, the names of owners and occupiers, the dates of surveys and patents, and the names of contiguous land owners. Second, it identifies the early settlers and inhabitants of the area, carefully following them through deeds, wills, and inventories, judgment records, and rent rolls.
Finally, in meticulously compiled appendices it provides a chronological list of surveys between 1721 and 1743; an alphabetical list of surveys, giving dates, page reference--text and maps--and patent references; a list of taxables for 1733-34; and a list of the early German settlers of Frederick County, showing their religion, their location, dates of arrival, and their earliest records in the county.
