It was the last great inter-tribal Indian battle in the world. On October 25, 1870, on the banks of what is now called the Oldman River, near present-day Lethbridge, the Blackfoot Confederacy and the Iron Confederacy fought a vicious battle that left somewhere close to 400 warriors dead. The battle included ‘the Sutherland’ brothers, two red-haired, blue-eyed Scots/Crow halfbreeds who made an incredibly courageous stand on the riverbank.
