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.

Tribes to host ITYP in Arlee next month Charmel Tellier Char-Koosta News The Salish and Kootenai Tribes are once again hosting the Montana Inter- Tribal Youth Practicum (ITYP), with Jocko Prairie as the site for this year’s camp that will be sponsored by Montana Indian tribes and the Northern Region of the U.S. Forest Service, announces coordinator Bev Morigeau. The practicum will run from June 6 to the 13 and will feature apow wow, talent show, cultural events, workshops, and the Mystic Mountain exercise (an activ­ ity that involves decision-making in resources management). The week of learning includes mythi­ cal reservation situations in which the “tribe” of 15 to 20 students plans to manage the resources available for the next 30 years. In that time, they are charged with meeting certain quotas, such as a certain amount of wildlife habitat, grazing land, and operating money. They also write resolutions to establish any per capita distributions, Tribal businesses, or areas reserved as cultural sites, etc. Tribal department specialists and U.S. Forest Service professionals will be on hand to direct students, as will BIA, University of Montana and Mon­ tana State University professionals. In between Tribal meetings, the stu­ dents participate in recreational and cultural activities and plan for the talent show. Also during the practicum stu­ dents and staff nominate and choose a princess and chief to represent ITYP throughout the year. The winners are announced at an awards ceremony along with other awards recognizing outstanding students. This year’s practicum will be a “total camp-out situation”, says Morigeau. The USFS will set up their portable showers, tents and tepees at Jocko Prai­ rie. She also says the pow wow and feast that will take place on June 12 is open to the public, so they’ll be posting their exact location on maps sometime later. “I encourage kids to apply. It’s a good learning experience if you are interested at all [in Tribal governments],” says Morigeau. Eligible participants are high school students, grades 9 through 12. Each Montana tribe has been invited to send around 20 participants. The students on the Flathead should check with their school counselors if they are interested in learning about Tribal management. You may also contact Morigeau at Two Eagle River School, 246-3598, or USFS coordinator Ira Jones at 329-3389 (Missoula).

The institute will be conducted at the University of New Mexico School of Law in Albuquerque, NM, from June 6 through July 29,1988. The Summer Institute is designed to introduce participants to the rigorous demands of law school. The eight- week program, a replication of the first semester of law school, will offer three substantive law courses, including In­ dian law, and an advocacy course in which students will prepare a moot court brief and present oral arguments before a panel of three judges at the end of the program. First conducted in 1968, the original and continuing intent of the Pre-Law Summer Institute is that it be based on sound legal education principles, and not function as a philosophical, political or cultural training ground. It is not a remedial program, but rather is a nation­ ally respected pre-law orientation pro­ viding training in the skills required for the study of law. It profits law school applicants by providing a vehicle for conditional admissions to law schools, and is a valid preparatory program for regularly admitted students. There is no tuition cost and a small living stipend will be given to partici­ pants. Students must be eligible for BIA services in order to be considered.
