*Census designated places (CDPs) are delineated for each decennial census as the statistical counterparts of incor-

porated places. CDPs are delineated to provide data for settled concentrations of population that are identifi able 

by name but are not legally incorporated under the laws of the state in which they are located.  Th

 e boundaries 

usually are defi ned in cooperation with local and tribal offi

  cials.  Th

  ese boundaries, which usually coincide with 

visible features or the boundary of an adjacent incorporated place or other legal entity boundary, have no legal 

status, nor do these places have offi

  cials elected to serve traditional municipal functions.

Th

  e Blackfeet Reservation, headquartered in Browning, is the third largest 

reservation in Montana, encompassing 1.5 million acres.  It lies along the 

eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains on the Canadian border, and is the 

eastern gateway to Glacier National Park.   Home to 56% of the enrolled 

16,000 Blackfeet tribal members, the reservation’s economy is primarily 

agriculture based.

Th

  e Tribe owns and operates seven profi table tribal farms and ranches and 

manages the very successful Blackfeet Bison Program.  Fifty-six percent of the ag 

producers are Blackfeet members (Blackfeet Agricultural Department records).  

Th

  e income generated from production is used primarily to support public 

services and community and cultural events.   Th

 e Blackfeet Tribal government 

is the largest employer, providing work to approx. 800, with seasonal injections 

of up to 150 additional positions.  Other major employers include Browning 

Public Schools (which provides 388 jobs), Siyeh Development Corp (fi ve 

businesses with 314 staff ), Indian Health Service (230), Bureau of Indian 

Aff airs (61), Blackfeet Housing Authority (100), and Blackfeet Community 

College (81).  Th

  e newly created gaming establishment Glacier Peaks created 

294 jobs when its doors opened in September 2006.   Th

  e private sector hosts 

61 businesses in the community, of which 81% are Indian owned.  Teeples IGA 

provides work for 49 employees, making them the largest private employer in 

Browning.

Th

 e Tribe, in partnership with utility corporations, is embarking upon 

renewable energy development.   With a recent grant from the Department 

of Energy, a wind farm is in the planning phase. Additionally, collaborative 

partnerships are pivotal in the development of two new ventures: Manpower 

(a successful trainer of Indian FEMA emergency response teams) and Glacier 

County Port Authority (currently in development discussions).

According to the most recent BIA labor force report, 35% of the Tribe’s enrolled 

members are below the age of 18.  To attract and retain the Tribe’s youthful 

population, the Blackfeet Community College initiated online services with 

MSU Northern, UM Missoula, and the University of Great Falls to off er 

baccalaureate degrees in education (teacher training program) and Native 

American studies, and Blackfeet bi-lingual training (Indian Education for 

All compliance).   Construction of a new high school is now underway, since 

receiving $12 million from the Board of Trustees through their creation of a 

building reserve fund, mill levy and bond issues.
