Programs offered in Glacier Park

NATIVE AMERICA SPEAKS

Print Article

Now in its 32nd season, the Native America Speaks program provides Glacier National Park visitors the opportunity to hear from members of the Blackfeet, Salish, Kootenai and Pend d’Oreille tribes as they share their knowledge of the language, history and culture of Native America throughout the summer.

The Native America Speaks program is one of the highlights of the growing partnership between the National Park Service, the Glacier National Park Conservancy and Native American tribes.

Presentations are offered throughout the park in campground amphitheaters and auditoriums almost daily through Sept. 9. All take place in the evening starting between 7 and 8:30 p.m.

All programs are free except for Blackfeet Singers and Dancers performances on Wednesday evenings at the St. Mary Visitor Center auditorium. Tickets for these programs go on sale the morning of the performance at the St. Mary Visitor Center Bookstore ($5 for adults and free for children 12 and under).

Tickets are also available at the door (cash only) prior to the beginning of the show, although seating is limited. Proceeds help the Glacier National Park Conservancy’s support of the program.

The Blackfeet Singers and Dancers, led by Joe McKay and Ray Croff, will provide insight into contemporary and traditional Native American history and culture through narration and fancy, jingle, traditional and grass dance demonstrations.

Jack Gladstone, a native “PoetSinger” and lecturer from the Blackfeet Indian Nation, uses a blend of song and narrative to guide visitors through tribal stories, animal legends, and character portraits of Native American heritage. The program also features presentations by Darnell Rides At The Door, Robert Hall, Ernie Heavy Runner and Kenneth Eagle Speaker.
