Communities Within the Blackfeet Reservation
More Northwest Montana
The Blackfeet Reservation is located in Northwest Montana, just east of Glacier National Park. The 1.5-million acre reservation includes most of Glacier County and is home to about 7,500 members of the Blackfeet Nation, or about half of the total enrollment of some 14,700 members. Those living away from the reservation live mostly in the Pacific Northwest but some are as far away as Europe.
The town of Browning is the hub of the reservation and the home of several tribal offices and businesses. Other communities include Babb, East Glacier Park and St. Mary. The traveler will find a number of motels, hotels, campgrounds and restaurants on the reservation along with plentiful recreational opportunities there and within the nearby Glacier National Park.

James Willard Schultz Papers 1867 - 1969
James Willard Schultz (1859-1947) lived in and wrote about the portion of Northwest Montana now included within the Blackfeet Reservation and Glacier National Park. In 1877, at the age of 18, he traveled from his birthplace in Boonville, New York to Fort Benton, Montana Territory. He became interested in American Indians and lived with the Blackfeet Indians for many years. Drawing upon his experiences on the western frontier he later wrote books and articles to make his living as an author. His success was notable in his own time, and many of his books remain in print.
