The People’s Center Gets a New Name, Announces Logo Contest
Back in September, we shared the heartbreaking news that the People's Center in Pablo, a beloved institution that celebrated the cultures and traditions of the Salish, Pend d'Oreille and Kootenai tribes, had been badly damaged in an arson fire which left one dead. It was devastating news to hear, although we were relieved to discover that the fire did not reach the museum portion of the center, which meant the artifacts and photos inside suffered minimal damage.
In November, the forever optimistic staff of the People's Center, along with tribal leaders, announced that the center would be moving to a new location, and rebranding with a new name. In January of this year, the Tribal Council approved the new name, 'Three Chiefs Culture Center & Gift Shop.' Named for Chief Charlo (1830-1910), Chief Alexander (1810-1868), and Koostahtah (1856-1942.) The new center can be found at the Allard Complex in St. Ignatius, you've likely seen the big log building with a blue roof. Current hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Find their Facebook page here and rebranded website here.
Congrats to all involved with the reformation and opening of the new center, this is very exciting news, and we applaud their tenacity during a pandemic.
