From the archives of the Montana Historical Society, here’s an excerpt of the 1964 radio reporting by KSEN in Shelby, Mont. Jerry Black, Bob Norris, and a team of correspondents produced some of the only on-site reporting of the unfolding disaster.
The Flathead Beacon published a story on our project last week. You can read “Preserving Memories of the Blackfeet” here. Thanks to Justin Franz and the Beacon for the interest in our project. Justin gets to the guts of our project with this: A big part of the presentation will be a mobile phone app that people will be able to download and use to travel across the reservation. At specific sites, video, photos and text pertaining to that spot will appear on the phone and people will be able to read about what happened there 50 years earlier.
