Welcome to Niarada, Montana

Niarada is on Sullivan Creek some twenty miles west of the Big Arm of Flathead Lake. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company) Flathead is the largest natural freshwater lake in the western United States. Twenty-eight miles long and 15 miles wide, Flathead Lake is renowned for its fishing. Wild Horse Island, a 2,163-acre wilderness area on the west shore of the lake, is home to bald eagles, bighorn sheep, and wild horses.

Niarada is on the Flathead Indian Reservation, home to three tribes, the Bitterroot Salish, Upper Pend d'Oreille, and the Kootenai. "Confederated Salish" refers to both the Salish and Pend d'Oreille tribes.
