Sept. 5 is a much-anticipated day for members of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes around the Mission and Jocko valleys. A billboard with “09.05.15” sits next to Highway 93 between Arlee and Evaro. Also on the billboard is a stylized graphic of a fox, the logo of Energy Keepers, Inc. A more accurate English translation from the company’s Salish and Kootenai language names is “keepers of the lightning.” It’s an appropriate title since Energy Keepers, owned by CSKT, will be responsible for selling the electricity made at Kerr Dam.
