Will the Gopher's Leave the Big Sky for California Surf...??

One of Montana's most enduring Native American families may be pulling up stakes. The Gopher family believe they have done all that can be done to foster a better inter-racial climate in Montana. This family has been at the forefront of political, cultural, and social change in Montana for over a century. The family has a history dating to Chief Rocky Boy--their work has benefitted many tribal groups in the state, on many levels...family members are seeking a broader impact to strengthen the standing of native people on a national and international level, saying that Montana may not necessarily be the best place to make that happen.
