With the disappearance of the buffalo in 1883, the entire tribe depended on the Agency for food. The agency failed to provide adequate rations during that winter, which resulted in over 600 tribal members starving to death. They were buried along the south ridge of the agency, which was called "Ghost Ridge, or the Country of the Dead by the Blackfeet."
