April 27, 2020

MISSOULA, Mont. — The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes have opted to remain under a shelter in place order during the coronavirus pandemic and neighboring Lake County authorities plan on reopening services Monday in accordance with guidance from state authorities.

County Commissioner Bill Barron and Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Chairwoman Shelly Fyant sat down and explained what that means for residents of the Mission Valley, where a patchwork of tribal and nontribal lands exist. Around 60 percent of the overlapping jurisdictions are owned by the tribes, but only 10 percent of the population are tribal members, Fyant noted.
