Glacier Book Club – People Before The Park

March 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The book cover for "People Before The Park" by Sally Thompson

About The Book: Step out of a world governed by clocks and into the worldview of the Kootenai and Blackfeet peoples. For countless years, they made their seasonal rounds in the landscape that is now Glacier National Park.

An archaeologist, ethnographer, ethnohistorian, and author, Dr. Sally Thompson has spent over thirty years working with the tribes of the Rocky Mountain West to tell history from their points of view. In People Before The Park, co-authored with the Kootenai Culture Committee and the Pikunni Traditional Association, Thompson brings readers into the lives, traditions, and practices of the Blackfeet and Kootenai people on the landscape in and around what we now refer to as Glacier National Park.

Join Executive Director, Doug Mitchell, on Zoom and have a discussion with Sally Thompson about her book, People Before The ParkRegistration opens soon!
