DescriptionJoin us at Chief Plenty Coups State Park for our annual Day of Honor celebration. This year's theme is Find Your Park: Find Your Place of Peace. The event will feature Lee Whittlesey, Historian for the National Park Service who will present a program on the Centennial of the National Park Service. Other speakers include Elias Goes Ahead, Grant Bulltail, and Chris Dantic, who will focus on Chief Plenty Coups' time at places that eventually became parks. These parks are Yellowstone National Park, Rosebud Battlefield State Park, and Chief Plenty Coups State Park respectively. There will also be a Crow Dance and Drum group, Push Dance contest, fun run, horse shoe tournament, silent auction and Veteran Honor Guard. To conclude the event, a free buffalo feast for the public will be catered in the afternoon. For an event schedule please visit http://stateparks.mt.gov/chief-plenty-coups/.
