Heart Butte is one of the oldest traditional communities of the Blackfeet Reservation. More than 60 houses are clustered around
the old subagency, established about 1915. It is now the site of a senior citizen's center, a health clinic and a Head Start program.
Many residents remain on the original allotments of their ancestors in the surrounding area. The community is justly proud of its
new shool, built partially underground and located south of the town. Towering above, to the west, is the mountain known to the
Blackfeet as Moskitsipahpi-istuki, Heart Butte.
