In Good Faith – Summer Documentary Screening

Orlan SvingenDr. Orlan Svingen can be found across a series of presentations offered in Montana and Idaho this summer that are dedicated towards recognizing his work with local Indian tribes!

IN GOOD FAITH is a documentary that centers around the work of Dr. Orlan Svingen and his ongoing work with the Mixed Band of Shoshone, Bannock and Sheep Eater people of the Fort Hall Indian reservation near Pocatello, Idaho. Through his decades of work with Indian tribes across the U.S., Dr. Svingen has developed strong relationships at Fort Hall and forged the creation of Indian history field schools that are conducted in Central Idaho
