     The state of Montana is home to 7 Indian reservations and 12 tribal groups. Six percent of the state’s total population, nearly 53,000 Montanans, are American Indians. Each tribe has unique cultures, traditions and histories. 

 

      This site was created to offer Billings K-12 educators Internet resources to provide instruction on the cultures,  heritage, and contemporary issues, of the Montana tribal nations.

 

      Teachers will find links to information that can assist them in learning and teaching  the required state standards, benchmarks, and requirements established through "Indian Education for All."
