Tsuut'ina oral history has preserved the memory of their separation from the Dane-zaa. Explorer David Thompson said that the Tsuut'ina lived in the Beaver Hills near present-day Edmonton during the 1810s, where they cohabited with the Cree. At some point, however, they came in conflict with the Cree and moved further to the south, eventually forming an alliance with the Blackfoot. The Tsuut'ina likely acquired most of their Plains Indian culture from the Blackfoot. Although in most respects the Tsuut'ina are typical Northern Plains Indians, their Sarcee language remains pure Athabaskan to this day. As such it is closely related to the languages of the Dene groups of northern Canada and Alaska, and also to those of the Navajo and Apache peoples of the American Southwest. Migrating over one thousand years ago, the latter tribes developed separately, becoming the most southerly of the Athabaskan peoples." (Wikipedia)
