Also see . . . Legends of the Sweetgrass Hills -- Treasure State Lifesyles. Perhaps the people with the strongest connection to the mountains are the Blackfoot tribe. The areas around the hills were once their homeland and a view from atop the buttes allowed them to easily track the massive buffalo herds. In their legends, the only location named in their creation story is the Katoyisiks. (Submitted on December 1, 2020, by Barry Swackhamer of Brentwood, California.)
