There were (and are) two completely different tribal groups in North America who have been called Blackfoot or Blackfeet; they have no connection with each other.

The Blackfoot Sioux (sihasapa) are a branch of the Teton Lakotas, living in the north-west part of South Dakota between the Sans Arc and the Minneconjou. They spoke the Lakota dialect of Sioux. Today they are mainly found on the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River reservations in South Dakota.

The Blackfoot tribes (siksikakwan) of Montana, Saskatchewan and Alberta formed a strong coalition which included the Piegan, Blood and Blackfoot proper - these are all Algonquian speakers; they had allies in the Sarcis and Gros Ventres, making them the most powerful force on the far northern Plains.

You cannot buy a "black footed ferret" that is in reference to an endangered species in North America. However you can buy a domestic ferret with black feet at a pet store or breeder that sells ferrets
