History

In East Glacier Park the Blackfeet Indian Tribe has had a major cultural influence—sharing their traditional regalia, celebrations, dancing and storytelling of the tribe and their home with visitors since Glacier Park Lodge was built. The Great Northern Railroad (and now Burlington Northern Santa Fe) has had its economic influence; French and English explorers and fur traders came and stayed; copper and gold miners came and went; the formation of Glacier National Park along with the national highway system made the place accessible to all; and western and foreign migration has colored this peculiar village, originally called Midvale.
