Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
St. Pierre, Rocky Boy Reservation
Located in the mountainous portion of the Anishinabe-Dakota Reservation, the CDP (Census Designated Place) of St. Pierre, is the fourth largest settlement on the Anishinabe Reservation. Latest population count (2000) has St. Pierre having a population of 289. There are at the present time, 80 housing units in the settlement, which means the average housing unit size at St. Pierre, is slightly under four. The elevation of St. Pierre is anywhere from 4,100 feet above sea level, to under 3,400 feet above sea level. The high elevation means the settlement has cooler summers than the lower elevations on the plains. FIPS code is 30-65537. The St. Pierre CDP covers 8.1 sq. mi. The CDP is what rightfully can be called a true CDP. There is no one location where a majority (like 40 or 50 housing units) is located. St. Pierre housing units are widely distributed throughout the 8.1 sq. mi. About 29% of the settlements population lives below the poverty line, which means the CDP's population has access to nearby jobs. Indians make up 97% of the settlements population. Whites make up 1% of the population. There is a sharp contrast in scenery between St. Pierre and the other CDP'S which are located in the Reservations mountains, to the secenery of the plains. From the treeless plains, St. Pierre and the other settlements located in the nearby Bear Paw Mountains, have many a tree which paints a beautiful scenery.
