Two Native American tribes in Montana have taken over ownership of a dam after a late legal challenge that sought to stop the transfer failed. The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes held a celebration Saturday in Pablo to commemorate the official takeover of the dam. The tribes paid nearly $18.3 million to NorthWestern Energy to acquire the dam. Tribes chairman Vernon Finley tells the Missoulian that the dam on the Flathead River will now be called Salish-Kootenai Dam. It had been named Kerr Dam.
