About Us

Signpost showing the remoteness of Wolf Point Montana

Located just north of the Missouri River on the high plains of northeastern Montana, Wolf Point sits on the Fort Peck Reservation — home to the Assiniboine and Sioux nations. In the 2020 census, more than 50% of residents identified as American Indian. Another 36%, some of whom trace their roots back to early homesteaders, identified as White.

Wolf Point is in the middle of nowhere. It is a long ways away from everywhere. The largest town within 100 miles is Williston, North Dakota. It’s 93 miles away. The nearest city of any size is Regina, Saskatchewan. It’s 173 miles away. Billings, the urban hub for eastern Montana, is nearly 300 miles from here.

Cutbacks in funding have severely impacted arts programming in our schools, especially in the lower grades. Even access to the public library is restricted for children aged twelve and under. In our remote community, there was no youth organization that offered regular after-school activities. Simply put, for many of our kids, there was nowhere to go and nothing to do.

Bigger Sky Kids is a 501(c)3 grassroots nonprofit for after-school arts education incorporated in 2017 in the state of Montana and launched in 2018. We welcome Wolf Point children from grades 4 through 8. There are no costs whatsoever for participating families. There are no ethnic, gender, means or other tests for participation.
