The Blackfeet Indians believed that the Rocky Mountains were the “backbone of the world.” Numerous Indian tribes used what is now Glacier National Park, but the Blackfeet dominated the area long before European explorers ever saw the spectacular peaks. Consider a visit to the nearby 1.5- million-acre Blackfeet reservation that borders the east side of Glacier Park, for a glimpse into native life. Browning, the largest town on the Blackfeet Reservation, is 13 miles northeast of East Glacier Park on U.S. Highway 2 and 31 miles south of St. Mary on U.S. Highway 89. The greatest recorded temperature swing in the nation occurred here in a 24-hour period on January 23 and 24, 1916 in Browning, the temperature shifted 100 degrees, dropping from 44 degrees to 56 degrees below zero! This eTrail provides detailed information on family-friendly things to do. The destinations include: Museum of the Plains Indians and Bob Scriver Montana Museum of Wildlife and Hall of Bronze.
