Flathead

The Flathead Indian Reservation is home to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai tribes. The confederation is a combination of the Salish, the Pend d’Oreille and Kootenai tribes, collectively known as the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes are comprised of the Bitterroot Salish, the Pend d’Oreille and the Kootenai tribes. The Flathead Reservation of 1.317 million acres is located in northwest Montana but their ancestral lands included the territory now known as western Montana, parts of Idaho, British Columbia and Wyoming. This aboriginal territory exceeded 20 million acres at the time of the 1855 Hellgate Treaty.


Twelve bands or tribes make up the federally recognized Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, on the Colville Reservation located in Washington state. The salish people are the Wenatchee (Wenatchi) indians, Nespelem indians, Methow indians, Okanogan indians, Palus (Palouse) indians, San Poil indians, Entiat indians, Chelan indians, and the Lake (Sinixt) tribes. The Moses-Columbia (Sinkiuse-Columbia) indians are Chippewa (Moses’ band) and Salish (Columbia band). A portion of the Nez Perce tribe (Chief Joseph’s band) also reside on this reservation.
