The Truth About Cowboys and Indians

I took this photo of my dad, Jess Matt as he was looking over the land where he raises cattle in Bridger, MT. He is what people like to call a “step-father”. He grew up rodeoing with my uncles, my mom’s brothers, and they started dating when he was 22 and she was 35. My mom had four children, my little brother was just 2, none of us share blood relation with him. They’ve been together for 18 years now. He is Blackfeet and Cherokee from Cut Bank, MT.
