The project helped connect the students with their Native culture and helped us see the Reservation through the student's eyes. Throughout the year the project was hands-on; David always engaged all of the students that were present, making sure they had and knew their equipment. He modeled the utmost respect for each of the students and monitored the respect between the students. He always cared about the involvement of each student and the class. David continually asked the students to evaluate their work and to make it better and encouraged them to share their work with other students and the community.

NYC Trip

From March 26 through April 2, 2016 fourteen Two Eagle River School student photographers traveled from Pablo, Montana on the Flathead Indian Reservation to New York City to learn more about the medium. They met photographers and community members, visited museums, publishers and learning institutions; they showed their work and made photographs.

An important partnership was established in this effort with the Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York who organized, installed and hosted an exhibition of the student's work.

When they returned students edited their New York photographs and a show of this work was mounted at the People's Center.
