My family just stayed at the wonderful authentic tipi village just west of Browning MT. I live only 30 miles from the village. To the bad reviewers- YOU ARE STAYING IN A TIPI, what did you expect? Yes is it on the ground, yes there are natural things on the ground, like bugs, gophers (along with their holes), etc. but it is supposed to be an AUTHENTIC experience. If you want a hotel, stay in a hotel. As for the price.... our climate in northern Montana means that amazing places like this can only be open for a few short summer months. They must earn their living from mid-may to mid-september. There is no way that any business could operate if they charged bargain rates for this short season.
My experience- My entire family loved it. We had our two sons (ages 3 and 1) with us. They had a blast. We booked an art workshop where we made drums and a par fleche, so fun! Keep sakes by which we will always remember our stay. We did the dinner (PLENTY OF FOOD) very good home-cooked family style dinner (buffalo meatloaf, chicken, polenta, salad, fresh bread, steamed veggies) yummm. We also signed up for the evening talk. After living just off the reservation for 7 years I didn't think I would learn much, but I was wrong. Sign up for the talk to have a better understanding and appreciation for the culture and history of the Blackfoot nation.
Loved it. Want to stay again. Anytime I have family visiting in the summer I am going to bring them here!
Thank you Darrell and Angelika for a great experience and for sharing your love of the Blackfoot culture with me and my family.
