Takeaways:

  • In 2020, Congress passed a law transitioning management of land in Montana from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service back to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.
  • The return of the land is a combination of Native peoples’ resilience, conservation guided by Indigenous knowledge and the US government’s commitment to honor treaty obligations.
  • The bison range in Salish Kootenai College has been restored and the people are hoping this will help bring them back.
