MONTIE MONTANA REACHED A GENERATION OF SAN FERNANDO VALLEY CHILEDREN

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY    2011

Ask people who you know, who lived anywhere in the San Fernando Valley and beyond, if they know who Montie Montana was --- and, they'll almost always reply:  "He came to my school when I was in the 3rd or 4th grade."  Montie made his living performing rope tricks in rodeos and was a fixture in America's favorite parades for generations. Your Museum's "Narrating Lives - Oral Histories of the San Fernando Valley" has interviewed two of Montie's children: Linda and Montie Jr.
