A People of Vision...
The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes are comprised of the Bitterroot Salish, the Pend d’Oreille and the Kootenai tribes. The Flathead Reservation of 1.317 million acres in northwest Montana is our home now but our ancestors lived in the territory now known as western Montana, parts of Idaho, British Columbia and Wyoming. This aboriginal territory exceeded 20 million acres at the time of the 1855 Hellgate Treaty.

The comment period on a draft EA has been extended from
September 3 to September 18.
Thanks to you who have offered comments. There is still time to submit your thoughts. See below.


Since 2010, CSKT has worked with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to return to the National Bison Range Complex. We have negotiated a new agreement and FWS has prepared a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate options at the NBRC. FWS has released its draft EA for public comment. CSKT encourages people to submit comments to FWS and express support for the new agreement. While FWS does not make its decisions based on a popular vote, federal agencies and federal courts consider levels of public support and opposition.

The draft EA, and proposed agreement can be found at www.fws.gov/bisonrange
(click on “Draft Environmental Assessment”). Comments must be submitted by September 18, 2014 and can be emailed to bisonrange@fws.gov, or mailed to: Laura King Planning Division, National Bison Range Complex, 58355 Bison Range Rd., Moiese, MT 59824.
