9781417940103: Signposts of Adventure: Glacier National Park As the Indians Know It

1926. With illustrations and map. In 1877 Schultz went to Montana for the summer to buffalo hunt. He ended up staying and became fascinated with the Indian life and joined the Blackfeet tribe. He learned to speak the Blackfeet language and married a Pikuni (Blackfeet) woman. He became a recorder of the open West romance and writer of stories of the at-large Indians. Often men like Schultz were characterized as hangers-on or romantic reporters; their lives and work show a more dedicated purpose-to know and record the last of the Indian culture in its native landscape even as the culture was subsumed by white settlement, changed by forced moves to reservations, or even outlawed. Contents: Blackfeet Indian Names of the Topographical Features of Glacier National Park upon its East Side; and Kutenai Indian Names of the Topographical Features of the West Side of Glacier National Park.
