Throughout our travels in Montana, we have seen evidence of the Native American presence here. There are several very large "Indian" reservations that we travel through. This is a statue of two Indian braves on horseback.
Better picture - Note the Canadian flag too. There were no national boundaries before the Americans and Canadians settled here.
We are entering their reservation - their laws apply - Treky will be very careful.
I hope you can read enough of this to get the gist of it. Tippy-Too says to remember this is their land. We are visitors.
The Indians are in very bad shape - They are totally dependant on the government. Many children have no father in the home and there is a drive to have volunteers to provide foster homes.
About every five or six miles along highway 2 there will be a "pull out" with information such as this. Pitiful way they were treated.
A little history
Part of the last sentence: "very much alive in tribal memory"
Tippy-Too: The plight of the Indians and their history makes me sad. Do you notice that I have my own pillow? Ron had to stop at Walmarts in Great Falls, Montana and buy one for himself.
Thank you for riding with us -- We feel like you are right here with us.
Ron, Tippy-Too and Treky
