Title

Welcome Sign to the Reservation

Description

The sign reads: “The Indians on this reservation belong to the Flathead, Kalispell, Spokane, Kootenai, and Pend d’Oreille tribes. Lewis and Clark met the Flatheads in 1805 and described them and their allies the New Perce as being friendly and exceptional Indians. They call themselves the “Selish,” Flathead being a misnomer applied by the whites. They frequently crossed the mountains to the plains to hunt buffalo and there clashed with the Blackfeet, their hereditary enemies. Many of the French and Scotch names amongst them came from marriage with Hudson Bay Co. Trappers and traders in the early fur days.”
