Facility:Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana
Description:What started as accidental finds during childhood have sparked over half a century of collecting artifacts for one local historian. The Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana contains thousands of artifacts, photographs, paintings, and original documents. The detail and variety of the museum items provide an in-depth look into the lives of the Pend’Oreille, the Salish, and the Kootenai of the Flathead Reservation, especially from 100 years ago.

Some of the most prized artifacts were given to the Museum by Tribal Elders, including George Kickingwoman of the Blackfeet Tribe, and Eneas Conko of the Pend’Oreilles.

The most astounding room in the museum is the diorama room. Mounted wildlife and birds, including a variety of native raptors in a natural setting is in one area, and an Indian camp complete with elk hide teepee, c.a. 1880. take you to a typical day in the life of the Montana Native.
