Montana tribe sends tree to Indian museum in DC
The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of Montana donated a tree to the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

The tree is a companion to the one the state of Montana sent to the U.S. Capitol for use as the official Christmas tree. This is the first year NMAI has a companion tree.

"The tree came from our reservation and I’m really pleased to see it here," Paula Wofford, a tribal member who works for the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, told The Ravalli Republic.

The tree is decorated with ornaments made by members of Montana tribes.
