Wednesday and Thursday evenings, May 21 and 22, Bitterroot College UM will be presenting Salish history with an emphasis on the Medicine Tree in the south end of the Bitterroot Valley.

The events are free and open to the public at the Montana Room of the Bitterroot River Inn in Hamilton. College Director Victoria Clark said in a news release, that the goal is to provide accurate information about the Salish history and their connection to the Bitterroot Valley – in the past and currently.

Wednesday, May 21, at 7 p.m. Tony Incashola, Salish-Pend d’Oreille Culture Committee director, will present “The Medicine Tree,” which will detail the Salish worldview, their beliefs and contemporary connections to the valley.

Then, Thursday, May 22, an “invitation only” field trip will take community leaders to the Medicine Tree area. At 7 p.m., a panel discussion will focus on issues currently facing the tribe and the Bitterroot Valley community.

For more information, call the Bitterroot College in Hamilton at (406) 375-0100.
