About HPWM

We are an all volunteer organization and recently celebrated our 8th birthday!

Much of our untold Montana history is slipping away daily with the generation of women who lived it. It is urgent that these stories be captured, preserved, shared, and celebrated! The diverse women of the High Plains, past and present… What are their everyday life stories?

For eight years, our passion has been to actively share answers to this question with youth and the elderly through interactive family festivities, personal storytelling, vintage fashion shows, ethnic exhibits, Indian powwows with live drummers and dancing, Mexican dancers, Hawaiian music & dance, Oriental hands-on crafts, and skill-building activities that highlight all the racial groups.

Collaborations

Here at the High Plain’s Women’s Museum, we work collaboratively with others to capture true stories about the everyday lives of women, Native American, Hispanic, Black, Asian, European-American, past & present, because we believe their stories have not been collected, preserved, honored and shared like they deserve to be.

We have worked with schools:

  • MSU-Billings’s Women’s Studies program
  • Rocky Mountain College’s Montana History
  • K-12 Schools

And other organizations:

  • Our Montana, Inc.
  • Girl Scouts
  • Boy Scouts
  • 4-H Clubs
  • Boys & Girls Clubs
  • Montana Historical Society
  • and many others
