Can anyone tell me about Browning MT ? What is it like to live there? What kind of stores are there? What about churches? Housing? Climate? Costs of daily living, like fuel, heat, utilities? What about restraunts? Entertainment? Movie theaters? How is the TV and Radio reception? I would like to know everything about how it would be to live in Browning. Thanks to all who reply!

To sort of quote a movie, "The Chronicles of Riddick" I would say, "If I owned a place in Browning and Hell, I'd rent the place in Browning out and live in Hell."

The climate is very cold and windy in the winter. The economy hardly exists. Most of the streets aren't even paved. There's even a sign going into one of the neighborhoods that is a warning to anyone not familiar with the town...it's dangerous, especially if your aren't a native american. There are actually roving packs of wild dogs in the town. Basically, it is the bottom barrel indian reservation town that you can't believe exists unless you go see for yourself. It feels like your driving through a small third world country. For the rest of any cultural aspect...there is none. I highly doubt there is any movie house, or restraunt that is above those of truck stops.

yeah have fun with Browning, only Heart Butte and Poplar are worse.

Browning is a complete dump and don't let anyone tell you different.

Um, I think I would try living in Montana before taking on Browning. It is just on the East side of Glacier. I thought it pretty with rolling hills. Very Very poor. You had entertainment questions....well, if you want city culture I wouldn't suggest Browning. It, to me, would be like asking What about Pecos, Texas.
If you are by yourself fine....I wouldn't suggest it for a family whom might want pizza delivery. Course its been 20 years since I've been there personally, but my son sells equipment in all of Western Montana and it sounds like it hasn't changed.

It hasn't......
I would liken it to Furnace Creek in Death Valley for desolation and poorness only the complete reverse in temps. And the wind... we won't even start on the wind.

Being that I live in Browning and I was raised in Heart Butte I would like to reply to your outlandish strikes against our towns and our reservation.

1. The roads are paved and we do live in houses not tepee's!
2. There are strays, but not 'roving' packs of 'wild' animals!

What you wrote brought a smile to my face because it sounded so crazy. Reminded me of some of the outdated state laws: It is still legal for a member of the white race to shoot a Native American from a covered wagon in the state of Montana! (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!)


Yes, some of our living conditions are of the third world. But I believe if I were to drive through your home town I would find similar places and possibly even more of them.

There are many 'white' people here in Browning and throughout Blackfeet country and none of them are being run out or are in any more danger than any other person here on the reservation.

Where the hell do 'you' people come up with this crap? Do your parents sit you down when your like ten and tell you that Native Americans are nothing but beggars and thieves, and that the places they live in are the worst?

Moderator cut: personal

Oh, and by the way, where is this warning sign that you speak of? I've lived here for a long time and have seen nothing of that sort here.

Having been to browning I have to say I never saw roaming packs of anything nor do I think it reminds me of a "third world country" like some of the southern border areas (like Tijuana for example). I do think it's a desolate part of the state and very poor money wise but rich with respect to Indian heritage which is something that can't be bought.
Though I wouldn't want to live there I would have to say you need to go see for yourself, it may work for you just like anywhere else.
I don't think there's a need to be insulting about anybody's home here, commenting on the weather,landscape,views,hunting,fishing and local economy should give the info needed.

I came up with my opinion of Browning from visiting, not based on what someone told me. The gentleman at the firework stand who tried to sell me cocaine and dynamite was the deciding factor for me.
