The Flathead Indian Reservation, located in western Montana on the Flathead River, is home to the Bitterroot Salish, Kootenai, and Pend d'Oreilles Tribes - also known as the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Nation. The Reservation was created through the 1855 Treaty of Hellgate and includes parts of four Montana counties: Lake, Sanders, Missoula, and Flathead.
The Bitteroot Salish migrated from the west and share similar language with coastal Salish tribes. The Kootenai are native to the region and lived predominantly in Idaho, Montana, and Canada.
