Thursday, August 27, 2015. Join us to celebrate the launch of the new MHS Press book, People Before the Park: The Kootenai and Blackfeet before Glacier National Park. In this book, the Kootenai and Blackfeet tribes share their traditions—stories and legends, foodways and hunting techniques, games and spiritual beliefs. Readers will gain a new respect for the people who were at home in every season in what is now Glacier National Park. From 5:00 – 6:30 p.m., the Last Chance Community Pow Wow committee will be selling Indian tacos on the front lawn. Come early to enjoy dinner and support a good cause. Author Sally Thompson will give a reading at 6:30, followed by a book signing. Admission to the museum is free on the evening of the event.
