Take Part in a Truly Traditional Native American Experience Like No Other

Montana 406 Outside Adventures works both with the Salish Kootenai of the Flathead Valley and The Blackfeet of Browning-East Glacier to offer unique experiences only available on the Indian Reservations. Far more than just your standard Pow Wow or reservation tour. We include adventures such as week-long traditional Native American camping where you learn how to set up teepees, participate in medicinal sweat lodges, traditional hunting and gathering techniques, cooking, fishing, meat curing, hide tanning, and foraging. Pick huckleberries, try your hand at bareback horseback riding, study the indigenous plants in the area, and a whole lot more.
