This annual four day celebration takes place the second week in August. Heart Butte is one of the oldest traditional communities of the Blackfeet Reservation. More than 60 houses are clustered around the old sub-agency, established about 1915. Many residents remain on the original allotments of their ancestors in the surrounding area. The community is justly proud of its school, 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.
