POLSON — We are looking for members of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes to join a discussion on food memory and food traditions with Montana State University students on September 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Polson (location to be determined). Complimentary dinner with Native Foods will be served. At the end of the 1.5-hour discussion, you will receive a $20 gift card for your time. Your participation will help the students to learn CSKT’s food culture and to develop a CSKT smoked trout using all native ingredients. The recipe of the smoked trout will be used by the tribally owned Native Fish Keepers to promote their lake trout products. Participants will receive the developed recipes and the discussion findings. If interested, please complete the survey in the following link

This project has received the IRB approval from both the Salish Kootenai College (approval number 2019_18_Kuo) and Montana State University. For any questions, please contact
