Blackfoot (also called Blackfeet, Pikanii) is an Algonquin language spoken by the Native American Blackfoot tribe. Primarily, it is spoken in southern Alberta. However, it is also spoken in Montana. There are about 5,000 Blackfoot speakers in Canada, and 5,100 speakers total.
Schools on Blackfoot preserves are working to encourage the use of the language. In certain areas, Blackfoot is still used as the principle language among older Native Americans. Younger Blackfoot generations prefer English.
