Overview
More
Rich in culture and heritage, beautiful scenery, premier fishing lakes, RV camping and primitive camping. The reservation is a highly rural agricultural area, spanning parts of both Glacier County and Pondera County, with a population of 10,405 residents (2010 census). There is one incorporated community on the reservation, the Town of Browning (population 1,016) which is the gateway to Glacier National Park and has served as the headquarters of the Blackfeet Indian. The Blackfeet Reservation has a varied topographic makeup ranging from the grasslands and river valleys of its agricultural areas in the central and eastern parts of the reservation to the heavily-forested mountainous region along the western boundary. Altitudes range from 3,400 feet on the eastern end of the reservation to over 9,000 feet at Chief Mountain in the west.

If you are lucky enough to be traveling through during Indian Days, it is really worth the stop and walk around. The dancing is very interesting.

Until the local population decides to elect officials who will work together for the benefit of all members of the tribe, Browning will continue to spiral downward. Law enforcement is everywhere! Is this law presence because of high crime? When we visited the museum, there...More

We had a private guide (Darrell Norman, an Elder from the Blackfeet Nation) who took us on a day long expedition around the reservation. We saw many sites we could have never found on our own including buffalo jumps, ceremonial lodges, tipi sites, winter camps,...More

Stayed on the Blackfeet Reservation for one week. It was nothing at all of what I expected it to be. In fact it was more like a spiritual and learning experience. Went with Global Volunteers. I believe you will appreciate the Blackfeet Reservation if you...More

I wasn't sure what to expect visiting the Browning area during my Glacier trip. Indian reservations can be quite interesting. Yes, there are areas run down. Unfortunately that seems to be the case with a lot of reservations. The dogs running wild is quite unique,...More
