Priest Lake and the Period of Contact

Jack Nisbet presents "Priest Lake and the Period of Contact 1807-1860" at the Inn at Coolin. From the moment the North West Company established fur trade posts west of the Continental Divide through the International Boundary Survey's extensive mapping of the 49th parallel, Kalispel tribal members helped visitors unravel the complex geography and interbraided cultures within the regional drainages. Jack explores the surprising ways that Priest Lake figured into that process.
