James Willard Schultz lived with the Blackfeet, married a Piegan woman, and wrote in detail about his experiences. The Northern Piegan band of the Blackfeet Nation are the modern Indian tribe usually associated with Glacier National Park. Schultz gave Blackfeet names to geographic features in the park. It was the writings of James Willard Schultz that first enticed George Bird Grinnell to the area in 1885. Grinnell later helped to establish the park in 1910.
