KWIS was awarded an IMLS grant to create updated video at the Cataldo Mission

KWIS was awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant to develop a new audio-video documentary about the history and culture of the Tribe that will be enjoyed by people in a theatre setting at the Tribal visitor center at Cataldo, Idaho. KWIS and the Coeur d'Alene Tribe’s Culture department collaborated to complete this project. The previous documentary was very dated; it was developed over 30 years ago and lacks relevant information important to accurately portray the culture, language and history of the Tribe. 

The Coeur d’Alene Tribe plays a significant and varied role in our ancestral homeland, preserving and protecting natural resources and the Old Mission State Park, site of the visitor center, and the oldest standing and used building in the State of Idaho. We are honored to tell our story to all who come to our Tribal visitor center.
