Share Local Tribal Stories at Lake McDonald

Kootenai dancers in Glacier

Glacier National Park’s Lake McDonald has been known as a special place for thousands of years. Long before the park was established, traditions and celebrations held at the foot of the lake commemorated people’s livelihoods and reaffirmed their spiritual needs.

This project would develop interpretive exhibits to convey the traditional stories and deep cultural connections of First Nations and Tribes to this landscape, and emphasize how a shared appreciation of this special place connects different people and groups today. Funds would provide the production of photography, artwork and story content in collaboration  with the Kootenai Culture Committee and Salish-Pend d’Oreille Culture Committee Elders.
