Latino History in Montana – Bridget Kevane
Latinos have a more than two-centuries-old history in Montana. Yet few know about the history, culture, or economic contribution to the state. From the fur trade to the sugar beet, from our Flathead cherries to construction, Latinos have had a long, if invisible, vibrant culture that continues to this day. Who are Latinos in our state? Where are they coming from? How are they shaping Montana demographics? How are border policies impacting the communities? Learn about the history and future of this community and how it is changing our state.
Bridget Kevane presents the history of this community and discusses the critical role that current border policies are having on the community and immigration.
