Before the white man, before the Crow Indian, and long before the buffalo, the wooly Mammoth roamed the land. The western Indians of the time hunted the Mammoth and documented the hunts with cave paintings. Some of these paintings or pictographs are still visible. These archaeology sites, just minutes from downtown Billings, was the home for these paintings and the Indians. We will take a short hike to view the Pictograph Cave, Ghost Cave, and Middle Cave.
Back into the car and travel the trail that will lead us into part of the Crow Reservation where the natives are called Mountain Crow. Here is the original home site of burial ground of the Last Crow Chief, Chief Plenty Coups. The home site has become a national memorial to his peace efforts and to the Crow People.
