Flathead Salish Culture and History

As a complement to our Flathead Salish language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Flathead Salish tribe and their society. Please note that Flathead Indians and other Native Americans are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Flathead Salish history is interesting and important, but the Salish Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
