Interpretive Native American Cultural Tours

Tribal Nations in Montana have extended stay-at-home orders indefinitely and continue to exercise caution to protect their elders and other vulnerable populations from the spread of COVID-19. At this time, all tribal lands are closed to visitors. Stay informed, seek information from reputable sources and call ahead to ensure businesses in your destination community or area are open.

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 Native American/Blackfeet Cultural Tour in Glacier National Park—the Backbone of the World. Interpretive tours in the park 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 Blackfeet residents, 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.

Sun Tours is just one of the many ways to experience the history of the Native 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.

Experience more of Glacier Country’s rich American Indian heritage of art, music, dance, storytelling and sacred lands at traditional events like North American Indian Days and the Annual Arlee 4th of July Celebration. Learn more here.

Also visit the Museum of the Plains Indian in Browning for a collection of tribal artwork created by the Native people of the Northern Plains.
