Treaties MapA mission to the Kainai (Blood) tribe (one of three tribes that make up the Blackfoot Nation) was a relatively late endeavour on the part of most churches. Itinerant missionaries entered the area south of the Bow River after the Jesuit Jean-Pierre de Smet and Methodist Robert Rundle first travelled to the region in the 1840s, but no permanent missions were established. With the signing of Treaty 7 in 1877 and designation of reserves, the Blackfoot Confederacy lost control over their traditional territories and the Anglican, Roman Catholic and Methodist churches all initiated the building schools, churches and hospitals.
