Language & Culture

When European settlers arrived in north America, more than 300 languages were spoken. Today, only 175 remain, and many are in danger of disappearing. 

To help ensure our Salish language is not lost like so many others, the Camas  Foundation has been focused on increasing education and adoption.


From time immemorial, the Kalispel Tribe has been dedicated stewards to the well-being of the land we all share.

From clean water, to clean air, to rehabilitating local wildlife populations, our Natural Resources Dept., works hard to care for our planet. We regularly partner with many organizations and charities that help in that cause.
