Honor a Great Leader

This day-use park on the Crow Indian Reservation south of Billings preserves the cabin and farmstead of Chief Plenty Coups (Aleek-chea-ahoosh), visionary leader of the Apsáalooke (Crow) Nation during the latter half of the 19th century. Perceiving clear-eyed the grave threats posed to Absáalooke culture by a colonizing power, he successfully fought for the tribe's rights as the U.S. government settled the Crow on a reservation. In 1884, Plenty Coups gave up the old ways of his people to run a farm and a general store. Before he died, Plenty Coups donated part of his land to the public, and today on this plot you can visit his log home, his grave, and a museum illuminating his life.
