Reflecting on the legend of the Cold Maker in Blackfeet culture, George Bird Grinnel wrote, “As Cold Maker was bringing the snow to the Blackfoot winter camp, he passed the Sand Hills. The last lodge had been set up in the Blackfoot winter camp and evening was closing over the travel-tired people. The sun had dropped beyond the hills not far away. Women were bringing water from the river at the edge of the great circle. Men gathered in quiet groups, weary after the long march of the day. Children called sleepily to each other, and the dogs sniffed about in well-fed content.”
