Join us as we explore water and its importance to the life of the Jocko River valley, from the dogwoods and alders on the river’s banks to the bull trout and westslope cutthroat trout that swim in its pools and riffles. Learn about the Salish and Pend d’Oreille people that call the river valley home, their traditional use of the river, and their efforts to restore and protect it.

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation have undertaken a large-scale watershed restoration project to benefit bull trout and other native species in the Jocko River drainage. This DVD is the centerpiece of the educational component of the project. The DVD is a multimedia set of interactive educational materials describing the ecology and importance of bull trout and the species relationship with the Salish and Pend d’Oreille people.
It combines extensive text, video, multilayered maps indicating changes over time, interviews, animations, audio, and access to a large number of resources of relevance to the project. It integrates scientific information about bull trout, state-of-the-art restoration strategies and techniques, and extensive historical information about the importance of fish to the Tribes, with information from Tribal elders about the Tribes’ long-term relationship with bull trout. In all, the DVD contains more than sixty hours of material and is structured so it can reach multiple audiences, from children to adults.
