MONTANA, 1878 Andrew Garcia, a real-life Little Big Man, left the army at 23 and went out with a party of traders to make a living among the Indians in the Montana wilderness. Soon he acquired the name “Squaw Man” and an Indian wife—the first of three. Indians, frontiersmen, traders, trappers and the “Boys in Blue”—all were part of his “paradise” between two worlds and two eras of history in the old West.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, a.k.a. SNAP, is the technical name for the "Food Stamps" program. The first food programs for the poor were introduced in the late 1930s and those programs are under the authority of the Department of Agriculture. In the 1970s, these food programs were added as part of the regular Farm Bills that go through Congress every 5 years.
