Ninepipes Museum awarded Foundation for Montana History Grant
News from Ninepipes Museum
CHARLO —Ninepipes Museum is excited to announce a recently awarded grant from The Foundation for Montana History in the amount of $6,500 to help preserve our collections. Thank you, FMH, for helping us keep history alive through preservation.
On June 3 the museum will hold another First Saturday event with an SKC Student Art Show. Ninepipes Museum is partnering with Salish Kootenai College (SKC) Art and Design programs to feature art and design students from SKC. This is a perfect opportunity for the students to present and sell their art in a gallery setting. Stop by, meet the artists, and support our student community.
On Sunday, June 11, the Heritage Keeper Benefit will take place from 2-5 p.m. at Ninepipes Museum. This second annual Heritage Keeper Benefit is a ticketed fundraising event with music, food, and a live auction. Native speakers, Aspen and Cameron Decker of “xwlxlilt,” (Salish for Alive and Well), will be featured along with the Salish singing, drumming and hoop dancing. Seating is limited so call early at 406-644-3435 to purchase tickets.
