Montana Indian Language Program

The Montana Indian Language Program (MILP) demonstrates the State of Montana’s continued commitment to protect American Indian cultural integrity by recognizing that languages (spoken, written, or in sign language form) are vital to the identity of tribal nations and the state.  Montana tribal languages are in a time of crisis through the loss of native speakers, writers, and signers.  The tribes and the state have resources such as tribal colleges, councils, historic preservation offices, the Montana Historical Society, and culture committees among other resources to preserve and protect Montana tribal languages for this and future generations.  These grant funds, contracted to the tribal governments for further distribution for local projects, will support the respective language preservation efforts of each tribal government.
