Salish Indian Celebrations on the Flathead Indian Reservation

Created: Thursday, February 22, 1912

Salish Indian Celebrations on the Flathead Indian Reservation
by Johnny Arlee

For over a hundred years, the Arlee Fourth of July Celebration, or Powwow, on the Flathead Indian Reservation has brought people together to honor the traditions of the Salish. Over a Century of Moving to the Drum: Salish Indian Celebrations on the Flathead Indian Reservation, by Salish teacher and spiritual advisor Johnny Arlee, offers a tribute to this longstanding event. Lavishly illustrated with pen and ink sketches of powwow scenes and photographs of powwows in the 1940s, the main narrative is based on interviews Arlee conducted with Salish elders in the 1970s. Excerpts of the interviews—and interviews with modern powwow participants—round out the volume. Copublished with Salish Kootenai College Press.
