What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Very commendable,” assured Tribal Chairman Joe Felsman. One of the practicum’s highlights was the pow wow June 14 and the selection of 1TYP Princess and Chief. Twenty- eight students competed in this contest They were judged by a team of staff on their knowledge of cultural activities, self-conduct, involvement in ITYP and their over-all poten­ tial as a representative. The contest was a close one. The second runners-up were Mike Irvine (Flathead) and (a tie) Gigi Sorrell (Flathead; and Denette Goldhammer (F t Peck). First run­ ners-up were James Steele, Jr. (Flathead) and Angela Brockie (Ft. Belknap). The 1985 ITYP Princess and Chief was Doreena Plant (Flathead) and Woody White (Crow). All the winners took home a variety of presents. Each tribe (the real ones) that was represented at the practicum can be very proud and rest assured that their students did a wonderful job. “ The students are the ones who really made the practicum a success,” said Morigeau. * NOTE: We would like to extend our special thanks to the following for their contributions to the 1985 Inter-Tribal Youth Practicum: CSK Tribal Council Bureau of Indian Affairs U.S. Forest Service Shoreline Protection Kootenai Culture Committee Search and Rescue Flathead Culture Committee Fish & Game Skin Koots Drummers Natural Resources Dept Pistol Creek Singers Hellgate Singers Doug Allard’s Trading Post (donation) Bear Child Drum Bearhead Swaney Four Winds Trading Post (pow wow MC) (donation) Frank Tyro (teen dance music) Flathead Staff Rod Goss (recreation) Gary Stevens (consultant) Jim Steele (consultant) Ruth Swaney (consultant) Myrna Chiefstick (cultural advisor) Arsh Stiffarm (F t Belknap -- consultant) Francis Auld (cultural advisor) Morris St Pierre (Rocky Boy — consultant) Sadie Saloway (head cook) Barbara Bacon (Crow - consultant) Gloria Trahan (cook) Michelle Trahan (cook’s helper) Tammy Elser (consultant) Vic Matt (head “ gofer”/bus driver) Darrel Armstrong (Law & Order) Maria Boldt (nurse) Junior Tribal Council Randy Morigeau (accountant) Members o f the Plains Tribe explain how they managed, their property for 30 years.

The first, a certificate of appreciation, presented to her by the Montana Indian Education Association, said, “ In recognition of having participated in events/activi­ ties which have contributed to the improvement of the general and academic welfare of Native American children in the State of Montana.” From the Tribes she received a certificate of distin­ guished service from Councilman Jim Steele. The pre­ sentation was preceded by a two-page introduction of Morigeau and her achievements, not only for herself, but for the future of the Indian people The presentation ended with two standing ovations for Morigeau, a few tears, then a reminder from the lady of the hour “ wearing her sergeant’s stripes,” as Steele put it, that KP duty awaited half-a-dozen of the applaud­ ing students.
