New Funds Are Now Being Given to Preserve Tribal Languages

Posted: Updated:

Governor Bullock has announced that local Indians tribes will be receiving the assistance they need in order to help preserve their native languages.

The governor, along with the Department of Commerce and the Director of Indian Affairs announced an award of $2 million in funds to the Montanan Tribal Governments for language preservation, an initiative that will be formally known as the Montana Indian Language Preservation Pilot Program.

The program, which was approved in coordination with house bill 2, during the 2013 legislative session, and signed into law by Governor Bullock on May 5th, was created to support Montana tribes that are struggling to keep their native language thriving.

  $250,000 will be given to each tribal government through local program advisory boards and the State, Tribal and Economic Development Commission.
