The Crow, part of the Indians of North America series, presents a fascinating portrayal of the history and culture of these native people. The Crow Indians were a powerful people who settled in the lush prairies of what is now southeastern Montana. In the 1800s, the U.S. government took much of their land. Today, thousands of Crow live on a reservation in the heart of their original land.
