Sen. Clinton campaigns on Flathead Reservation
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-New York) campaigned on the Flathead Reservation in Montana, home to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, on Tuesday.

Clinton spoke to an estimated 1,200 people at Salish Kootenai College. She said she would be a "strong partner" with Indian Country, after receiving moccasins and a necklace from Joe McDonald, the tribal college's president.

"You have gone a million miles for Indian people. Here’s a pair of moccasins to help you on your journey," McDonald said, The Missoulian reported.

Native Americans make up 6.3 percent of the population in Montana and represent as much as 20 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary on June 3, according to the Associated Press.

Clinton is headed to South Dakota today for a visit to the Pine Ridge Reservation. The state's primary also takes place June 3.
