Fort Belknap Indian Community

The Fort Belknap Indian Reservation is an intertribal reservation in Montana which is home to the Assiniboine and Gros Ventre people. The Assiniboine and Gros Ventre are historically distinct tribes with unrelated languages, but under population pressure from the United States in the late 1800's, the Gros Ventre and some Assiniboine bands agreed to settle together on the Fort Belknap reservation, where their descendants live together to this day. The Assiniboines and Gros Ventres of Fort Belknap share a single tribal government.
