At Monday night’s Missoula City Council meeting, the city and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai tribes formalized their government to government relationship.

Tribal council member Steve Lozar asked those in attendance to use their imaginations to think back over the years to when the Indian peoples hunted and fished in the area where the University of Montana now stands. Lozar also spoke at the dedication of the University of Montana’s Native American Center.

Lozar and several tribal council members were on hand for the ceremony at the Missoula city council chambers.

The name ‘Missoula’ comes from the Salish word for the Clark Fork river.
