The Crow Tribe of Indians of the State of Montana has an enrolled tribal membership of approximately 11,000, of whom 7,900 reside on the Crow Indian Reservation. Eighty-five percent speak Crow as their first language.
The Crow Indian Reservation is the largest of the seven Indian reservations located in south-central Montana, bordered by Wyoming to the south and the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation to the east. The reservation encompasses approximately 2,300,000 acres (9,300 km2), which includes the northern end of the Bighorn Mountains, Wolf Mountains, and Pryor Mountains. The Bighorn River flows north from the Montana-Wyoming state line, journeying north to the Little Bighorn River just outside Hardin, Montana. The city of Billings is approximately 10 miles (16 km) northwest of this reservation boundary.
The PBS TV series Reading Rainbow filmed its tenth episode “The Gift of the Sacred Dog” here on June 17, 1983. The title was based on a book by Paul Goble and was narrated by actor Michael Ansara.
