The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes’ flag rose over the former Kerr dam site for the first time on Friday morning, September 4. The flag ceremony came a morning after the tribes’ corporation, Energy Keepers Inc., paid for the dam. The ceremony was intimate with a crowd of invited guests. The Mission Valley Honor Guard executed the flag raising. “It’s quite an emotional event for all of us involved,” said EKI CEO Brian Lipscomb.
