Honoring Mardell Plainfeather – Montana Heritage Keeper Award presentation of  the Montana Historical Society – Public Reception at the Western Heritage Center

    • Friday, March 6, 5-6 (Free Public Event)

Mardell Plainfeather’s Crow name—Baa Hinnaché, or Always Working—reflects her tireless spirit and dedication to preserving, documenting, promoting, and teaching the history, culture, and identity of the Crow Apsáalooke people. Plainfeather is an enrolled member of the Crow (Apsáalooke) Tribe, a member of the Big Lodge clan, and a Whistling Waters child. She speaks fluent Crow and is adopted in the Sacred Tobacco Society of the Crow—the original “medicine” of the tribe.  Over the past twenty years, Plainfeather has been instrumental in developing and completing a wide range of museum, tourism, and public outreach projects on Crow history through partnerships with a wide variety of organizations, including the Western Heritage Center’s, American Indian Tribal Histories Project.
