PLEASE JOIN US AS WE COMMEMORATE THE CSKT ACQUISITION OF THE KERR PROJECT
On September 5, 2015, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes will celebrate the acquisition of the Kerr Project, a major hydroelectric generation facility that lies in the heart of our homelands on the Flathead Indian Reservation. Construction of the Kerr Project in the 1930s marked a time of significant cultural and economic changes for our Tribes. Today as we look to the future, we anticipate that the Project, which once exemplified destruction to our way of life, may now help restore and revitalize our Tribes as we continue the important work of protecting our reserved and aboriginal lands, caring for our people, and preserving our cultural resources. On behalf of the Tribes, please help us commemorate this milestone.
