Flathead Indians

Flathead delegation of six and an interpreter.
Photographed by Charles Milton Bell (1848 - 1893) Bell was the official portrait photographer for the Native American delegations that came to Washington, D.C.
The name Flathead Indians was given to people of the Salish, Pend d'Oreille and Kootenai tribes by the first white men who came to the Genesse River.

Today The People's Center exists to provide public education on aspects of traditional lifestyles and histories of the Salish, Pend d'Oreille and Kootenai people. It is in Pablo, Montana, USA.
