Tribe without a Home: Montana's Little Shell tribe still without a home
Originally a part of the Pembina Chippewa tribe that once had a reservation in North Dakota, Montana’s Little Shell Indians are a landless Indian tribe. There are about 1,000 Little Shell members living in and around Great Falls, Mont., with the rest scattered around the United States.
A federal treaty in 1892 shrank the Little Shells’ North Dakota reservation to almost nothing, and when the Little Shell buffalo hunters returned from a hunting trip in Montana, they were informed that they were no longer a part of Chippewa tribe. Chief Little Shell and his followers returned to their hunting grounds in Montana and have been here ever since, a landless Indian tribe looking for a home. “They were homeless over night,” James Parker Shield said. Shield is a Little Shell tribal member and former tribal council member.

Fisheries benefit from Hungry Horse dam selective withdrawal
Fish in the Flathead River below Hungry Horse Dam have had the best conditions possible in recent years as the dam has been operated to mimic natural flows, according to a comprehensive study recently published in a prestigious science journal.
“Our results suggest that past flow management policies that created sporadic streamflow fluctuations were likely detrimental to resident salmonids and that natural flow management strategies will likely improve the chances of protecting bull trout, cutthroat trout and other species,” the study states. That conclusion reinforces the state of Montana’s long-held resistance to demands for late-summer “flow augmentation” releases that were intended to benefit salmon in the lower Columbia River system.
