Montana

Do you have a nickname? Mine is Gully.  Montana has a couple: The Treasure State and Big Sky Country.  Montana is Spanish for mountain. When the territory was being named there were suggestions that a Native American name would be more fitting. Shoshone was a popular suggestion since it was the tribe of Sacajawea, a young Native American girl who traveled and interpreted for the explores Lewis and Clark.  After much disagreement, the name Montana became official.  Purrs,  Gulliver
