Do the Rocky mountains have hillbillies like the Ozarks and Appalachians do?

    Appalachia has a society that is called, and calls itself, hillbilly. Generally not a nice word anymore. In a more general way there are people living relatively off the grid in mountains all over the world. In the Rockies and elsewhere that I have been they call themselves "Mountain people". Simply put: Yes, there are people living a similar mountain lifestyle, all over the world. No, they aren't called by that name mostly.

    In the west they call themselves "survivalists" or "militiamen".

    There are some American natives that continue to live the way they have for centuries.  Some of them have jobs like other people.  They are definitely not "hillbilllies".

    No, it's not a hillbilly culture here.

    Do try not to stereotype people. If you're looking for uneducated people, they're everywhere. The survivalist nuts tend to be in the northwest- Oregon, Wyoming, North and South Dakota. They are just as uneducated, anti-science, uncivilized as anyone ever was in the South.

    No. Not much worthwhile in the Rocky Mountains. It is just a dead divide for the most part.

    The Ozarks and Appalachians were Living Mountains, peopled by escapees from the British dominated & persecuted Scots, and Irish. The high-lands for the Scots.

      I traveled thru there on my summer vacation in Alberta, Canada & the Kalispell flathead valley was interesting, so was Coeur D'Alene in Idaho.
