Quilting was introduced to Montana’s Indian reservations by Christian missionaries. The natives added their own touch to the star quilt with traditional symbols and designs. Today’s Morning Star quilt is a contemporary equivalent, representing honor and function in Indian Spiritual life. It is one of the most honored gifts a family can give or receive.
Montana is a destination for many vacationers, with the majestic Rocky Mountains, wide-open prairies and winding rivers. Ranked fourth in size, and only 44th in population, there is a lot of open space! There are two National Parks, Yellowstone and Glacier, in Montana. Historical parks, trails, sites and monuments, as well as battlefields, are all around, in some of the most breathtaking natural scenery you will find. Take a step back in time by following part of the Lewis & Clark Trail or visiting the Little Bighorn Battlefield. The Montana Historical Society Museum is full of artifacts and information about the state. Hunter’s love Montana, and they will find three Cabela’s locations. It’s hard to believe that there not any Bass Pro shops, but your hunters can find one just across the Canadian border.
