One River, Ethics Matter: Western Montana

  • University Center Ballroom 32 Campus Drive Missoula, MT, 59812 United States (map)

As Canada and the United States start negotiations over the Columbia River Treaty, the University of Montana will host a conference to discuss the future of rivers flowing through western Montana.

“One River, Ethics Matter” will examine the moral dimensions of the dam-building era, focusing on U.S. Indian tribes and Canadian First Nations people, rivers and the life that depends on them, and the compelling need to add ecosystem-based function to the Columbia River Treaty.

Tribal, First Nations and religious leaders from the Upper Columbia River will lead the one-day conference on ethics and the past and future of the Columbia River.

The conference brings together religious leaders, indigenous people, educators and writers. David will present a short talk during the day-long event and participate in a panel.

The event is hosted by UM’s Center for Natural Resources & Environmental Policy and the Department of Geography and is free and open to the public. Lunch is provided, and an evening reception will follow.
