Glacier National Park St. Mary Visitor Center

Culture / Visitor Center

Glacier, MT

At the eastern border of Glacier National Park lies St. Mary Visitor Center. In a multi-year consultation process with the Blackfeet, Salish, Kootenai, and Pend d’Oreille people, EDX worked with the park to create an award-winning interpretive exhibit that invites visitors to experience Glacier from the point of view of its original inhabitants.

Each tribe has a historical relationship to the land that is now Glacier National Park. Entering the visitor center, visitors are introduced to the park from the perspectives of the three tribes. Further exploration brings them to a dramatic diorama of a winter wolf kill and a recreated Blackfeet lodge. Accompanied throughout by the voices of American Indian people, visitors recognize shared beliefs and identify with universal experiences.
