For nature lovers, the main attractions of the Flathead Indian Reservation are fishing and water recreation on numerous lakes and streams and bird-watching in Ninepipe National Wildlife Refuge. A tribal fishing license is required, and is available at most licensing agents.
Of the approximately 6,950 enrolled tribal members of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, about 4,500 live on the reservation, which is interspersed with non–Native American ranches and other property. Both tribes celebrate their heritage during the annual July Powwow. 406/675–2700, 406/657–0160, or 888/835–8766. www.cskt.org.
