Native America Speaks

Blackfeet Tipis

Blackfeet Tipis

Doug McMains, NPS

Each summer Blackfeet, Salish, Kootenai,and Pend d'Oreille tribal members share their knowledge of the history and culture of Native America with Glacier National Park visitors as part of the Native America Speaks program. Programs are offered in campgrounds, lodges, and at the St. Mary Visitor Center. All Native American interpretive programs offered at Glacier National Park are made possible through a generous donation from the Glacier National Park Conservancy.

Highlights of the Native America Speaks program:

Jack Gladstone, a Grammy-nominated Blackfeet singer/songwriter, presents his popular "Buckskin PoetSongs" program. His program uses original live music to discuss and honor Native American contributions to American culture.

The Two Medicine Lake Singers and Dancers provide insight into contemporary and traditional Blackfeet history and culture through narration and fancy, jingle, traditional, and grass dance demonstrations at the St. Mary Visitor Center.
