The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes are located on the Flathead Reservation in western Montana. They have undertaken a large-scale watershed restoration project in an effort to benefit bull trout in the Jocko River drainage. An important component of this project is education and outreach, of which the centerpiece is a multimedia set of educational materials describing the ecology and importance of bull trout and its relationship with the Salish and Pend d’Oreille people. This integrated set includes the storybook Bull Trout’s Gift, the Field Journal, and the interactive DVD Explore The River: Bull Trout, Tribal People, and the Jocko River.
The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes have also published Beaver Steals Fire: A Salish Coyote Story and The Salish People and the Lewis and Clark Expedition, both available in Bison Books edition.
