GREAT FALLS - For the Little Shell Tribe the day is almost here, the grand opening of their new cultural center coming up this Saturday. Joe Biega talked today with one of the folks involved in preparing the Tribes new building for this Saturday's event. While it may look like an empty room the scaffolding and bare walls are just a step on the road for the Little Shell Tribe's new Cultural Center.

"We're getting to the busy time for everybody, spring is finally here. We started this project adding on in January I believe, end of December- 1st of January and the weather cooperated enough we got it closed in and so we have been working on the interior for getting it ready to go," said Sievertsen.

Vice Chairman, Clancy Sievertsen has been one of the folks working hard to prepare the new center for this Saturday's grand opening, an event he and the rest of the Little Shell have been looking forward to.

"Saturday's our grand opening quarterly meeting for the Little Shell grand opening for our Cultural Visitor Center, we purchased this building over a year ago and we have been working on it through a grant that we got through the state economic development program," said Sievertsen.

This past year the little shell tribe has been recognized by the state of Montana as a tribe, the local tribe now awaits the day when the will be federally recognized once again.

"The Little Shell are finally getting up to where we're recognized state wide of course, but our federal recognition every thing we hear is it's as close as we have ever been. So we're really excited and we will have a big celebration when that day comes," said Sievertsen.

Sievertsen and the Little Shell Tribe will host their quarterly meeting on Saturday and will follow it up with a grand opening celebration.
