Pablo, MT

Pablo, MT in Western Montana

Carrying a hearty legacy, Pablo was named for tribal member Michel Pablo—a rancher and stockman who played a role in saving the bison of Montana from extinction. Headquarters for the Flathead Indian Reservation, Pablo is home to Salish Kootenai College—featuring a nine-hole golf course—and The People's Center, a tribally operated museum that shares the history of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.

Salish Name: Xʷeyʔilqsálqʷ
Meaning: “Forested Area Tapering to a Point”

Insider Tip

When visiting The People's Center, we recommend taking a guided tour for fascinating insight into the Salish, Pend d'Oreille and Kootenai tribes.
