Cultural Preservation...

The spirit and direction of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Nation is founded upon and reflected in its cultural heritage.

The cultural foundation of the tribes should be preserved as a living part of our community life and development in order to give a sense of orientation to the Salish, Pend d'Oreille and Kootenai people.

Cultural resources of the tribes are being lost, substantially altered or destroyed, with increasing frequency. It is the policy of the Tribal Preservation Department to protect cultural resources by identifying, evaluating, and protecting cultural, historic and archaeological resources and by regulating undertakings upon protected lands when they may result in changes in the character or use of such cultural resources.
