A Western confederacy, of Siksika stock. First
described in the journal of Anthony Hendry, 1754-1755, and again by
Matthew Cocking, 1772-1773. They were then known to the Crees as the
Archithinue. Cocking also gives the following for the five tribes in the
confederacy: Powestic-Athinuewuck or Water-fall Indians;
Mithco-Athinuwuck or Bloody Indians; Koskitow-Wathesitock or
Black-footed Indians; Pegonow or Muddy-water Indians; and Sassewuck or
Woody-country Indians. Their habitat was then, and until comparatively
recent times, in the foot-hills of the Rocky Mountains, on the upper
waters of the Saskatchewan. They are now for the most part on
reservations in Alberta. =Bib.=: Petitot, Traditions Indiennes du
