Abstract : This study examines traditional subsistence and settlement aspects of the Kutenai Indians, a distinctive Plateau group residing in northwest Montana and adjacent areas. The Upper Kutenai at Tobacco Plains are the focus of the study. The report uses data from published ethnographic and historic sources, but with critical review. In addition to a detailed discussion of subsistence and settlement, a tentative reconstruction is made of four successive protohistoric and early historic periods. These periods illustrate the transition from foot to horse mobility and corresponding cultural changes in Kutenai life.
