Montana - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2320 words)
Montana is an inland U.S. state in the northwest and north-central United States with around 60% of the state dominated by the vast expanse of the Great Plains.
Despite its sizable American Indian population, Montana is one of the most homogenous states— nearly nine-tenths of its residents are of European descent, with a large number of immigrants of German, Irish, Norwegian, Welsh/Cornish, Italian and Slovak heritage arriving from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.
As of 2004, the population of Montana was estimated to be 926,865.
