Kalispel Tribe of Indians



Our Land

Past, Present, and Future

In 1992, the Kalispel Tribe of Indians developed a mission statement to reflect the Tribe's belief in positive growth and development of the community as a whole. The statement reflects our desire to promote a bright future that respects traditions, recognizes the power of education, provides a nurturing environment for our children and aims for success through current and future enterprises.

Our Culture

Welcome to the Kalispel Cultural Program. Here you will find the "tracks from the past" in the form of pictures, manuscripts, stories, maps, etc. Our goal is to pass on these items to our children and the Kalispel community. Understanding our past and remembering our connections to the land and our neighbors is vital to our future. We continue to partner with our native and non-native neighbors to better understand and appreciate the ways of our ancestors.
