All invited to language summit

PABLO — SKC invites everyone to the Montana Early Childhood Native Language Summit on June 27 and 28 at the Robert DePoe III Building on campus. The event will start at 9 a.m. each day and is free of charge and open to the public. This event will bring early childhood personnel and language experts together to share ideas and to collaborate in the interest of young children learning their Native languages. SKC president, Sandra Boham, said, “The inspiration for this event came from a 2017 visit to Montana from NAIANHSCO Director Micker Richardson, who met with the SKC Division of Education staff and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Early Childhood Services Department about the many efforts to perpetuate Native language and culture that are happening in Montana.” Further questions can be directed to:, or or 


Classic country jam begins

Polson — A new classic country jam begins at the Elks in Polson on Sunday, July 7, and goes from 2–5 p.m.  This will take the timeslot of the recently disbanded Northwest Accordion Association Jam and take place on the first Sunday of each month.  

This new country jam provides the community with a place to continue jamming, dancing, listening and socializing with family and friends for a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. All are welcome. 

Bring your guitar, banjo, mandolin, auto-harp, fiddle, drum, bass, sax, keyboard, etc., and join us for a few hours of fun. Players and singers need to sign in as they enter the ballroom, must provide their own equipment and have songs picked and ready to sing or play when it’s their turn. Players and singers do not have to pay but family members and all others are charged $5 at the door. Water and coffee are provided. The doors leading to the bar are locked during the jam, but you can go there to purchase drinks if you desire. For further information call 406-883-3130.
