Montana’s Populist History

Our founders built Montana on a foundation of freedom, independence, and resilience. Today, those values still course through our veins as we follow in the footsteps of the hard-working, free-thinkers who came before us.

Join us at Prairie Populist throughout the next month as we highlight some of the people from Montana’s history that embodied those values and made the state what it is today.
