North American Indian Days

Projects encourage higher impact use of funds through inter-agency and tribal partnerships and increased visitation to rural areas of Montana

In partnership with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), the Montana Department of Commerce Office of Indian Country Economic Development (OICED) announced the product of their collaboration with the Crow Tribe to amplify native voice and perspectives through a short film.

“This model of working together sets a precedent to motivate other stakeholders to collaborate with tribal nations, across agencies, Destination Management Organizations, Convention and Visitor Bureaus and non-profit organizations to pool funding resources for higher impact results,” said Scott Osterman, Director of the Montana Department of Commerce. “Joint ventures like these strengthen tribal engagement in authentic content creation, increase Native American talent in front of and behind the camera, create digital assets that can be utilized by all involved, and support local multimedia production.”
