Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes consider per cap vote

Filed Under: Politics | Trust

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of Montana might vote on distributing the remainder of a $150 million trust fund settlement on a per capita basis.

In September, the tribe distributed half of the settlement. The payment came to $10,000 for each of the tribe's 7,580 members.

A group called the People’s Voice submitted a petition calling for a vote to distribute the remainder. A second per cap would come to about $9,000.

“The reservation is going through the worst recession our generation has ever known,” Jeri Roullier, a representative of the group, told The Missoulian.
