Tammie Grant is a consultant for Tribal Colleges in the area of geosciences and geospatial technologies.  She has worked since 2000 with Salish Kootenai College in Education Outreach with college students, middle and high school students and elders on the Flathead Reservation.  Salish Kootenai College is located in NW Montana between Missoula and Glacier National Park.
