    Native Languages of the Americas: Blackfoot

    Language: Blackfoot, or Siksika, is an Algonquian language spoken by 8000 people in southern Alberta and northern Montana. The two main dialects are called Pikanii and Siksika Blackfoot. Many children are still learning Blackfoot, but the language is currently undergoing linguistic shift, with ‘Old Blackfoot’ being spoken by older generations and ‘New Blackfoot’ being spoken by younger ones. Blackfoot is a polysynthetic language with complex verb morphology and fairly free word order.
