The social organization of the Blackfeet is very simple. The three tribes acknowledged a blood relationship with each other, and, while distinct, still considered themselves a nation.

In this confederation, it was understood that there should be no war against each other. The family is the foundation of the Blackfoot-speaking people’s social organization.

The term for “wife” is extended to all of her sisters and “husband” applies to all of his brothers. Grandparents (and often all elders) are called naas. These terms imply responsibilities in the ways people act toward one another. The Blackfeet tribes were led by a council of chiefs, one from each clan.

The Blackfeet council practiced consensus decision-making, where a decision could only be made if it was agreed on by all the chiefs. Women were in charge of the home as well as cooking and cleaning while men were in charge of hunting, gathering food and protecting the camp.
