Nínaiistáko ~ Chief Mountain

This towering peak is a sacred mountain to First Nations tribes. The Blackfoot people call the mountain “Nínaiistáko”. Tribal peoples travel from all across the North American Continent to hold sacred sweetgrass ceremonies, place prayer flags and conduct other religious rites at its base, or to climb to the top of the mountain for very special ceremonies. Geologically, this is a klippe; a remnant portion of a nappe that has been highly eroded over eons.
