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 St. Mary Visitor Center. This year we are expanding to include programs in Browning and Babb, MT.

All Native American interpretive programs offered at Glacier National Park are made possible through a generous donation from Glacier National Park Conservancy.

Program Highlights

Jack Gladstone, a Grammy-nominated Blackfeet singer/songwriter, presents his new "Glacier's Triple Divide: Heritage & Legacy" 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.
