Native America Speaks

Inspiring over 5,000 visitors annually, Native America Speaks will enter its 32nd year in 2016. Partnering with cultural leaders from local tribes to share their perspective on the meaning of the place we today call Glacier National Park, this program is a communication bridge between local Native people, Glacier visitors and the National Park Service. From traditional dancing to songs and poetry, visitors across the park have the opportunity to learn more about one of Glacier’s important interpretive themes celebrating the enduring connection between the Blackfeet, Salish, Pend d’Oreille and Kootenai peoples, and the landscapes and resources of the area known as Glacier National Park. “I’m trying to bridge the gap, to educate non-Indians about Indian culture,” said Gen Huitt, a Pend d’Oreille musician from the Flathead Indian Reservation south of Glacier, a longtime participant in the Native America Speaks program.
