First PeopleJoin a Park Ranger to view rock art of the First People on a hike that is moderate to strenuous along the cliffs at First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park. After the hike, attend the art show at the park’s Visitor Center and view works featuring contemporary Native American Artist DG House and members of the King Kuka family. 20 spots available for the hike (406-866-2217 to reserve your spot). This is a great opportunity to learn about 2 distinctive methods for producing rock art. There is a $4/person charge for the rock art hike, but there is no additional charge to attend the Art Exhibit.

House’s work is in permanent collections worldwide including musicians Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney, Michael McDonald, Grand Teton National Park, and the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. Kingsley King Kuka was a local Blackfeet artist and poet, known for his paintings and lithographs he called “Kuka-graphs.” He inspired a generation of American Indian Artists, and his work is recognized internationally; it is said the Vatican holds one of this paintings in their prestigious collection. Sadly, King Kuka passed away in December 2003. However, his legacy lives on through the creative spirit of his family as his wife Marietta and 5 children.
