Native Americans of the past guided early explorers across the mountains on foot and horseback. Today, Blackfeet guides escort visitors through their traditional homeland in comfortable 25-passenger air-conditioned coaches.
The Blackfeet guides frame the scenery with stories of Napi and enhance the beauty of the flowers by explaining their medicinal value. They tell how Montana's Native American populations endured the changing seasons and the changing environment, from before white men came to their homeland, through the days of the trappers and traders, the coming of the railroad, and the development of Glacier National Park as a destination for tourists.
Sun Tours is a good way for people to relax, see the scenery and learn a different viewpoint about the local history.
