Glacier National Park Announces 2016 Native America Speaks Program Schedule
WEST GLACIER, MONT – Glacier National Park is pleased to announce the Native America Speaks schedule for the 2016 season. Now in its 32nd season, the Native America Speaks program provides 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 with park visitors 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 almost daily through September 9. All programs are free except for Blackfeet Singers and Dancers performances held on Wednesday evenings at the St. Mary Visitor Center Auditorium. Tickets 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, however, seating is limited. Proceeds help the Glacier National Park Conservancy’s generous support of the Native America Speaks program.
