We took tribal media by storm!

We had successful meetings during our trip to the Flathead reservation. We met with Maggie Plummer, a reporter at Char Koosta Newspaper, and a brief meeting with Kim Swaney, editor-publisher. We spent a great hour with her, chatting about voting rights and life on the reservation versus DC life. She even sang us a little song about filibusters which she titled "Stuck in the Senate with You."

Frank Tyro at KSKC-TV, a public television station owned and operated by Salish Kootenai College, greeted us with a nice surprise. We came for a quick meeting and ended up taping a half hour segment on DC Vote for his weekly public affairs show. Sadly, we won't be in range to view it live but he promised a DVD. Look for it on our Web site in the coming weeks!
