Sashay S. Camel

I am studying for a degree in Environmental Science at Salish Kootenai College.  The Flathead Reservation in northwestern Montana has always been my home and I am a member of the Pend’orielle tribe of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.  After high school I began working for the CSKT Department of Natural Resources.  My favorite jobs were: Jocko River Basin riparian vegetation restoration, fisheries technician aide, and being a park aide for the National Bison Range.  It is my desire to achieve a degree so that I may someday make a positive impact on my tribes’ natural resource management and conservation.  My two kids are the center of my life.  My husband and I spend all of our free time fishing, camping, hunting, and participating in cultural activities.  My hobbies are painting watercolors and beading.  I recently illustrated a book for CSKT called Bulltrout’s Gift which incorporated Salish storytelling with the restoration of the bulltrout to the Columbia River Plateau.
