The Crow tribe previously lived in what they call as Yellowstone River Valley, which extends from Wyoming, through Montana and into North Dakota. Presently, they are now in the federally recognized Crow Tribe of Montana. They were friendly with the whites and managed to retain a large reservation of land over 9,300km despite losses. The Crow tribe maintained a herd of 300 heads and only operated a small irrigated land. One mine is still in operation, which provided income and employment to tribal members.
