"I Will Be Meat for My Salish"

The Buffalo and the Montana Writers Project Interviews on the Flathead Indian Reservation

Created: Saturday, January 19, 1918

The Buffalo and the Montana Writers Project Interviews on the Flathead Indian Reservation
by Bon I. Whealdon et al.
edited by Robert Bigart

The story of the Salish's relationship to the buffalo-including their role in protecting the species-is preserved in this collection, which includes all extant interviews from the Montana Writers Project conducted on the Flathead Reservation. These firsthand accounts of Salish elders-legends, information about traditional lifeways, biographies of important figures on the reservation, and most of all buffalo-offer a glimpse into tribal life as it was lived in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Copublished with Salish Kootenai College Press.
