  • Donald Frantz (1995) Blackfoot dictionary of stems, roots and affixes University of Toronto Press.
    • Dictionary that includes inflections, which is very useful, because Blackfoot is a polysynthetic language. Very comprehensive.

  • Renato B. Figueiredo (2014) Blackfoot-English-Blackfoot online dictionary
