A beautiful display of “Illuminated Teepees” are gracing Bozeman’s landscape.

“Lighting of the Teepees is a collaborative project with the Pretty Shield Foundation, the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council and the City of Bozeman. Seven illuminated teepees will be placed on the bluff that overlooks Bozeman for the 10 days that surround Indigenous Peoples Day.

This dramatic display invites all to consider and acknowledge the longer history of Bozeman’s landscape. As Bozeman’s population rapidly grows, it is important to amplify and illuminate the presence of the original residents to prevent further erasure of Indigenous cultures.

Pictured: Seven illuminated teepees are to be raised on the south end of Peets Hill in Bozeman, Montana from October 8 to 18 in celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day.

Lighting of the Teepees will honor the contributions of American Indians to our community, economy and rich culture & history. They will be installed on the ancestral lands and traditional use area of the Bitterroot Salish, Pend d’Oreille, Kootenai, Blackfeet, Northern Cheyenne, Crow, Chippewa Cree, Assiniboine, Gros Ventre, Dakota, and other Indigenous nations of this region.”

  1. Hello Brenda, my name is Alexis Jacobson. I am a junior at Montana State University, studying English writing. Recently, I was assigned a research-based project looking into the impact writing has on my community. I frequent your website often, and yesterday, I stumbled across this piece(a particular favorite, given the beauty and loving atmosphere of this event!). As per my assignment, I was asked to research and interview a writer I believe is making a fundamental change in my community, and I find myself drawn, every week, to your enthralling pieces. If possible, I would love to interview you to get a jist of your writing process, research methods, and how your pieces are geared towards making a difference in and around our community. If you have a direct email for contacting you, that would be more than appreciated. You can reach me back at my or at my cell-(952)-564-1266. Thanks, I hope to hear from you soon!
