Interpretive American Indian Cultural Tours

Tribal Nations in Montana continue to exercise caution to protect their elders and other vulnerable populations from the spread of COVID-19.

In Glacier Country, the Blackfeet Nation implemented a mask mandate on August 16, 2021, effective immediately. Click here for more details.

The Flathead Indian Reservation is open to nonresidents. All recreation restrictions were lifted, effective September 8, 2020, on Tribal lands within the Flathead Indian Reservation, although Tribal conservation and fishing permits are required. View the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes' Who’s at Risk campaign before traveling to our Tribal Nations.

Within Glacier Country you'll find the Flathead Indian Reservation (the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes) and the Blackfeet Nation (the Blackfeet Tribe). Make a date with the past and take a Blackfeet Cultural Tour in Glacier National Park—the Backbone of the World. Interpretive tours are offered by Sun Tours , and focus on the history of the park's natural wonders and their past and present connection to the Blackfeet Nation. Sun Tours guides are members of the Blackfeet Nation, knowledgeable about tribal culture and the history of the park. Tours touch on the spiritual and philosophical perspectives of the Blackfeet and offer some of the most scenic views of the park, including glacial lakes, expansive valleys and jagged peaks. It's also a great opportunity to view park wildlife. Also visit the Museum of the Plains Indian in Browning for a collection of tribal artwork created by the American Indians of the Northern Plains.

This is just one of the many ways to experience the history of the American Indian way of life. Prior to moving to the Flathead Indian Reservation, the Salish Tribe resided in Montana's Bitterroot Valley. Today, the Historic St. Mary's Mission in Stevensville serves as a portal into the past. Visitors can take a guided tour of the mission and grounds, as well as Chief Victor's cabin. The cabin houses an impressive photo gallery that helps tell the story of the convergence of two cultures.
