A few photos from our trip to Browning, Montana, the largest community on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. We had originally scheduled a clinic that would take place right after schools got out in Browning, but bad weather hindered our plans.

Instead, we visited each elementary school right as the final bell rang, introducing ourselves to kids and parents leaving the building, passing out GTG wristbands and spreading the word that a new youth lacrosse team was coming to town.

The reservation is home to the Blackfeet tribe. Of the approximately 15,560 enrolled tribal members, there are about 7,000 living on or near the reservation. Nearly 27 percent of enrolled members are of three-fourths or greater Indian blood. The Blackfeet Indians are commonly thought to have acquired their name because of the characteristic black color of their moccasins, painted or darkened with ashes.
